Local Services

St. John's Breadline: The St. John's Breadline serves nearly 600 meals a day at no charge to low income and homeless individuals in our community. Meals are available Monday-Friday 8:00-10:00 a.m. and 2:00-4:00 p.m. Sat/Sun/Holidays 10:30-1:30 p.m.

Holy Family Food Pantry: Our staff serves the nutritional needs of families by helping with immediate problems and searching for future solutions. Donations of food, time and money are necessary in order to respond to local hunger. Mon/Wed/Fri 8:30-12:00 p.m.

Mobile Food Pantry: Through this hunger relief effort, a refrigerated truck delivers a two-week supply of food to pre-registered individuals and families in rural communities. The MFP Program strives to deliver food to at least one rural community per month.

Catholic Charities Legal Services: This community-based, quality legal services program helps people with little to no income in obtaining pro bono legal assistance in civil matters.

Intact Family Services: This program's goal is to keep troubled families together by offering them intense case management and education in parenting, and linking them with related services in their communities. All clients must be referred through DCFS.

Crisis Assistance & Advocacy Office: We provide emergency financial assistance for rent and utilities, as well as providing basic necessities including food, medicine, and clothing. As part of a close-knit network of community agencies, we refer people for help when we are unable to assist with a particular need. Office hours Mon-Fri 8:30-4:30 p.m. or by appointment.
