Feeding Program

We have a breakfast and lunch feeding program which serves up to 300 persons a day. This program, with the help of staff and volunteers, serves hot meals and a comfortable place in which to eat them. A Social Worker and supervisors are there to answer questions and meet individual needs.

The Food Pantry

Our food pantry is available three days a week, Tuesday through Thursday, to serve the needs of individuals and families in a food crisis. We provide for three days of three meals for each individual in a family.

The Evangeline Booth Miracle Home

The Evangeline Booth Miracle Home is a 21 bed shelter for women and their children in crisis. Rooms and meals are provided on a temporary basis, until those who are experiencing homelessness due to family crisis, abuse or financial difficulty can get back into a more permanent and secure housing situation.

Youth Programs

Youth programs include music instruction, character building, religious and recreation programs for children. Volunteers and staff work with the children to assure learning, safety, and growth for young people in our community who may be in need of direction or who have a desire to grow in new ways and in new opportunities. We send children to our summer, sleep over camp in Penn Yan, New York. Camp Long Point is on Seneca Lake and is a wonderful "fresh air" opportunity for many of our chldren from an urban environment.
