I have been involved with the Christian Help Center since it began, and the best thing about it is seeing how people's lives change. People who end up on the street often are in deep despair, and lose the sense of how to live normal lives. The Center meets their immediate need for food, shelter and hygiene, but also provides counseling, job training, anger management, and other skills they need to move back into normal life. There are special facilities for homeless minors. The idea for the Center emerged from a prayer group and has all along been part of a walk with the Lord for us. We believe this is why we have been able to do so much with so little, though we have also been blessed with wonderful donors.

I have been a Board Member for 4 years and have seen the lives that have been transformed because of the generous support of the community for this very vital community service. Yes, the CHC offers shelter and food for the homeless, but it also offers spiritual food for those whose wish to partake. The sharing and caring of everyone that walks through those doors is so embraced by all. We truly see miracles daily, as sometimes the funds are so low, and with the generosity of all we are able to continue this mission of love.

CHC not only provides emergency shelter for the homeless, but also provides wholistic services to serve the total individual.In addition to feeding and food/goods distributions,they provide referrals through casemanagement services to meet the individual's needs, whatever it might be (SSI application; resume writing; job referrals; bills/landlords disputes; spiritual support; health concerns, etc.) With Christian influence, which permeates how everyone of all religions, sexual orientation, age and disabilities are compasstionately treated, the transformation of people's lives become testimonials of their success as they transition to self sufficiency and independence. It is interesting to see the bond former "guests" have with the shelter. Most return to become volunteers to serve others who come through the door.
