The food and care is an amazing organization. The director, Brent Crane, is visionary. He sees a vison of helping people who are in desperate situations to rise up and realize a better life. I love the way that they treat the poor with love and respect. I love the way that they find the specific needs of an individual and help them to address them. I love the way that those recieving help are encouraged to pay back the system with community service. This is a well run organization, they are frugal with their funds and amazing with their results.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

We have seen drug addicts get help, get clean, rebuild thier mouths and their lives. We have seen victims of abuse receive the counseling they need to move on. I have seen people with mental illness, who may never have a normal life, greatly improve their situations with the help of the food and care coalition

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them raise the money to finish thier transitional housing project so that people could get the help they need in a controled environment. No more clients dying from exposure on the streets of our community.

What a terrific program! I can not say enough about how well organized and motivated everyone is that works/volunteers at the Food and Care Coalition. Everyone works towards the same goal of providing the best care possible to those that come through the doors. I thoroughly enjoy giving of my time to help out such a great cause and I appreciate all that goes on behind the scenes to make even my work more efficient.

I would have a hard time finding a way to improve what they are doing. Motivation and drive is their strong suit and that isn't something you can teach or pay someone enough to create. I think networking and involving more people in the community will help their efforts, which I know they are already working towards.

I am very impressed by the facility, the volunteers, and the system that the Food and Care Coalition has maintained. The clients are always so appreciative and cooperative. I always feel good when I get to spend time working with these good people who just need a little extra help during a hard time of life.

Our foundation, Share a Smile, has a strong partnership with the Food and Care. We have been volunteering to provide dentistry for their clients for 8 years. In that time we have see many lives changed. Brent Crane and the entire staff at the Food and Care have amazing vision and work hard to lift those in need. Their new facility is amazing and has a unique feeling of hope. Its truly a place where lives are changed and miracles can happen. Its been a blessing in my life to be involved in the Food and Care Coalition.
