CAIN helps people through their services. They smile, talk to people, and give good advice. CAIN helped me with food, my energy bill, furniture, and with my needs.

Being around good people in a good environment has a positive effect in my life.

CAIN helps out. The people here are good, friendly people. When I came here, CAIN gave me food, and gave me a microwave at Christmas-time.

If you need help and you live in Northside, you should come to CAIN because they will help you in any way they can.

CAIN has helped us so much. I have six kids and I'm a single mom. My kids' dad died last year, so it's just me and the kids. CAIN has helped by giving us plenty of food. It's way different than other pantries.

CAIN cares. It's not just a service; they care. They are friends of whoever they help. They learn about you, ask questions, and talk to you.

When I come to CAIN, I feel like I'm going to my mom's house to shop in her fridge. CAIN made a huge difference in my life. Even though I come here once a month, it lasts. I don't have to worry about feeding my kids.

Come to CAIN!

CAIN is a great place. I would refer a friend or family member. It's a great environment for kids and family. They go the extreme to meet all your family's needs.

CAIN helped me with food when I didn't have it. They also help me with furniture vouchers, clothing, and gas and electric bills.

At CAIN, I feel at home. I feel welcomed with open arms.
