About Us

Our mission is to help our neighbors create paths to healthy food, stable homes and safe relationships.

Our Beginning

After seeing so many in need in the community, a group of community and business leaders came together in 1979 to form an organization addressing the homelessness and hunger in the community, forming Community Resource Center.
CRC has grown from providing basic needs for families in crisis, to offering extensive programs that facilitate the safety, stability, and self-sufficiency of low-income and episodically homeless households, including domestic violence victims.
