"Life is a series of collisions with the future; it is not the sum of what we have been, but what we yearn to be." -Jose Ortega y Gasset
The mission of the Food & Care Coalition is to alleviate hunger and diminish the plights of poverty for those who enter our doors. Our primary objectives include finding suitable housing, teaching financial accountability, facilitating an elevation in personal morals and values, and helping each patron achieve their full potential.
We believe in the inherent worth of people and embrace the philosophy that trusting relationships between patron, staff, and volunteer are vital in realizing this end. In order to succeed, charity and compassion from the community must be met by accountability and a personal desire to learn and grow by those served. The Food & Care Coalition by design, offers daily opportunities for the community to support, influence and participate both in the policy making and operation of agency programs to meet these objectives.
This approach creates an environment where homeless men, women, and children can restore their self-esteem, retain their human dignity, and regain the power and abilities necessary to become self-sufficient and productive members of our community.
In the inherent worth of the individual.
That everyone has the capacity for self-improvement.
In God-like charity and compassion
That access to opportunity is critical to self-reliance.
In the power of relationships.
That love is the sweetest of motivators.
In promoting moral behavior.
That love is the sweetest of life's learned gifts.
In the power of volunteers.
That both the giver and the receiver will be sanctified.
In the gift of love.
