Christian Social Services helps hundreds of families in our community. They give, and give, and give to people. I have seen how CSS has changed the lives of many of my friends and neighbors by giving them food and clothing. CSS even helps with electric bills. The employees are kind and caring. They are genuinely compassionate and loving. This agency impacts many people. CSS is a truly a blessing to our county.

I previously volunteered at Christian Social Services and know I received more of a blessing than I gave. I thought I knew about the poverty in our area, but I was deceiving myself. The people that CSS help are often hopeless because they feel that no-one will help. CSS can and will help. They help provide life's necessities, but do so leaving individual's dignity intact. They are caring about and for so many people in the area.

Christian Social Services is the “Good Samaritan” of Morehead and Rowan County. This agency helps the citizens of our community with great love and compassion by supplying families with food, clothing, and even assisting with their electric bills. Christian Social Services also helps our community during emergencies and disasters. They help families with cleaning supplies, household items, and furniture. I have witnessed the director, Beverly Gilliam go above and beyond helping individuals with their needs. She has a “heart of gold” and works hard to find resources to help families in need. She is constantly working on grants, a variety of donations (food, furniture, clothing, toys, household supplies, etc.), and services to aid with the needs of families. The employees and volunteers are loving and kind and always have a smile. They are warm and caring and make everyone feel comfortable and welcome. They work diligently putting out merchandise, stocking food items, making appointments, working with individuals, and much much more. This agency helps lift the burdens from heavy hearts. Christian Social Services is a true blessing to our community.

Christian Social Services in Morehead, Ky truly are the most caring individuals I have ever met. In my families time of need they supplied us with food, and winter clothes that truly saved our lives. If you are in need of help, please go to them and they are more than willing if you live in Rowan County. Bev Gilliam (director) goes above and beyond to get you help that is needed for families. We are a blessed community to have them. I thank God for them being there for us.
