We are always looking for volunteers to help us in our outreach efforts. Come and be a part of this exciting and rewarding experience by helping us help others.
A Clearing House for local churches assisting families with utilities, medicines, food, and other needs. We also have a food bank! Stock our shelves, fill bags, and distribute them to those who visit our office on Altama Avenue. We give out over 50 tons of food every year!
A former downtown bus terminal, the Well facilitates a number of resources for people who are homeless; including a shower, a laundry room, phone, Internet access, and an address for correspondence. As well as providing support groups, the Well is a safe place for social activities, and even houses a chapel.
We also offer transitional housing (1-3 nights) for homeless persons who are being discharged from the local hospital. Eventually, we hope to offer permanent supportive housing for homeless and those at risk of homelessness. There are numerous ways we can connect you to the homeless who live along the Norwich Corridor.
Visit with local Cancer patients. Give them a ride to treatment, send a note of encouragement, cook a meal or knit a prayer shawl, make telephone calls, lead support groups, wash and change linens, and more! Let them know that someone cares.
Persons reentering the community after incarceration face numerous challenges. We have opportunities for mentoring, coaching, teaching, case management, job training, and more.
We have several ongoing programs to help persons safely serve those who live in poverty or who face difficult challenges. These include our Wolfe Street Food Distribution (Tuesdays at 1:00), Norwich Corridor Outreach (Tuesdays at Noon), the Burroughs Molette Mentoring Program and other short term opportunities.
We always need trucks and backs to help pick up furniture and other items that persons wish to donate. Help us keep a long list of persons and trucks so that we can have people available when needs arise.
