Clarita's House Outreach Ministry is a very hands-on and caring charity. In our city there is not much help for the homeless but this charity is an exception!! When I was homeless, this charity was there to help me with food and clothes for my family and I.
Now, I help serve other families through this great charity!!

I have served on the Board of Directors for Clarita's House Outreach Ministry, Inc. for several years. It continues to amaze me the impact that this small powerhouse non-profit can do so much with so little. The outreach feeding programs, the backpack program, the holiday events for the homeless are incredible with this all volunteer organization. Every penny raised goes to the intended program. No big salaries, no big overhead, just people helping people.

I went to a job fair and amongst all the booths was Clarita's House.
I viewed a story board that showed what the organization is about with pictures of volunteers praying with people. Volunteers serving food, clothing and distributing toiletries to men, women and children. So, I signed up to be a volunteer. It isn't a paying job. But I am rewarded by helping others. Our community is asking for "911" assistance! And with government cutbacks there is even more help needed. Clarita's House has blessed me with perishable and non perishable food items also.
It's great to be a part of an organization that is helping the community!

This is a Organization that indeed deserves and need all type of support: Prayers, monetary support, people to come and volunteer. The leadership of this non profit and volunteers which are the core of all the work that is done on daily basis are very passionate, committed. They truly administer true justice; show mercy and compassion through their service and community outreach. Zechariah 7:9

I have been in many Organizations, ministries and I can tell that this people all they do is to serve, give and help. I look forward to become an active volunteer very soon. But meanwhile I encourage you, this is a way of leaving, is not fashion, is the real work of God in our community.

God bless you all-

For the past 7 years I have volunteered time and money to Clarita's House. I have seen how grateful people are when you serve them a hot meal and I see the donations used wisely. I believe Clarita's House changes the lives of the people it helps but it has changed my life as a volunteer as well. It makes me very thankful for what I have in my life.

I have been a part of Clarita's House Outreach Ministry, Inc. for the past 6 years. I can truly say that it has change my life. I am so grateful for what I have everyday! When we see the needs of children and families, between 3 to 8 people all living in a hotel room, children telling you how grateful they are for a morsel of food, entire community living in the woods. Clarita's House is making a difference one child, one family at a time.

I get appeals all the time for donations and I am cautious where I make donations. I can tell you Clarita"s House uses every dollar to help those in need. They are a tremendous blessing to people in the community. Without their help many families would be hungry, and without clothes, and shelter. They have a heart for those in need. I am honored to be a donor.

Not knowing the serious problem of homelessness and lack of food, I became intrigued and became a volunteer after hearing about the work that Claritas House does. We gave out food week after week at the Men's coalition downtown. I was fortunate to include clothing on some occasions as well. The looks on their faces and their gratitude always was worth coming back. They were also involved in furnishing a home where homeless people could now live. On a personal level Claritas House has allowed their relationship with Second Harvest to help feed the members of our church and community on many occasions. They even reached out to my daughter's team mate who lost their house in a fire. Between feeding the homeless downtown, serving them at a posh restaurant on Thanksgiving to make them feel special or being their for the community when food or clothing is needed, Claritas House is there. I am proud to be a part of such a great organization and can not wait to see how many more people they will touch in a positive way.
