About Family Life
Founded in 1982 and supported by private donations, our staff and volunteers are tireless in their efforts to assist the most needy in our community.
Clients complete an intake application and are thoroughly screened for eligibility through local agencies and sources. After screening, clients are helped on the basis of the need up to three times per year.
It is our mission to meet the needs of those who fall between the cracks of society. The poor, the homeless, the underprivileged. We serve people of all races, creeds, and religions. We do not discriminate. We merely seek to be Jesus with skin on. It is our goal to assist, pray with and encourage our clients and help them get back on their feet.
We do our best to provide any assistance we can. Thanks to generous donations of food and goods, money, and time from volunteers and supporters, we are able to help those in need in a variety of ways:
Our food pantry is our main mission. We provide sack lunches to our homeless clients and we supply food items to clients in need. We seek to provide a constant rotation of food on our pantry shelves. Our food comes from a variety of sources including:
We do not stock clothing, but we are happy to provide clothing vouchers to both St. John's Bargain Shop and Tri-Cities Clothing Bank. You may donate to St. Johh's Bargain Shop in our name and this will enable us to continue referring clients to them for needed items.
