HEALTHY FOOD

Joseph

When the pandemic hit, I came to CRC for help. I’m 72 years old and I’ve been sick and in and out of the hospital. It means the world to me getting this food. I’ve been staying at a hotel and working with [CRC case manager] Chad to find housing. CRC has been a godsend for me.

“I don’t feel alone anymore, because Community Resource Center is full of resources and there are people that care.

 

I was once homeless for a very long time. Now I have a beautiful place to live, I call it a piece of heaven.

“[After leaving an abusive relationship] I was helpless and no one wanted to rent to me. I was feeling hopeless … When I got my keys it was so exciting because I haven’t had my own home in over a year. CRC is a great resource for people that really need help.”

LETTER TO OUR CRC SUPPORTERS

Dear Friends,

 

Healthy Food. Stable Homes. Safe Relationships.

These are the essential necessities for life and are the foundation of Community Resource Center’s mission and programs.

 

Since March 2020, many of our neighbors have asked how the pandemic has affected us. Our response is simple: We’re doing exactly what we’ve been doing since 1979. CRC is feeding the hungry, housing the homeless and providing safety to domestic violence survivors. What changed in 2020? There was greater demand for our services. Domestic violence and food and housing insecurity increased in the shadow of the pandemic, therefore more of our neighbors came to us in crisis seeking assistance, reassurance … and hope.

 

Hope Nourishes. Hope Empowers. Hope Heals.

In response to the challenges of 2020, we witnessed compassion and generosity giving birth to hope. We saw neighbors helping neighbors by donating food and hosting food drives. We saw neighbors helping neighbors by volunteering to deliver food to seniors sheltering in place. We saw neighbors helping neighbors by donating over $1 million during the Community Cares Campaign, ensuring CRC’s response to the increased needs of people who were hungry, homeless and hurting.

 

2020 was driven by the generosity of caring donors, volunteers and community members, and together we distributed 507,225 pounds of healthy food, responded to 2,012 calls to our domestic violence hotline and helped 475 people obtain safe shelter from homelessness and domestic violence.

 

To our community, I offer my deep gratitude. Thanks to your partnership, we met the needs of people in the past year, are meeting the needs of our neighbors today, and are building for our future to meet the needs of tomorrow.
