How we can help you with immediate needs...

Take the Next Step is a place where you will find a listening ear, and a caring and committed staff and volunteers to help you take the next steps in your life.

We'll help you with immediate needs:

  • an emergency hot meal

  • a "care package" of food to go

  • sack lunches are available Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on a first come, first served basis

  • clothes, blankets, tarps, and sometimes tents; and help connecting with others who may be able to provide what we cannot

  • personal hygiene products

  • household items

  • use of telephone and fax

  • setting up a community voice mail account

  • emergency bus tickets and gas cards to travel to job interviews and medical appoints (subject to available funding)

  • depending upon funding, we may be able to help with emergency rent and utility assistance
