The First Congregational Church supports many local
and international missions every day of the year:
The Gleaners Community Kitchen opened in February of 1987 with a mission: to serve healthy meals, free of charge, to those in need, no questions asked, no one denied. They serve about 55 meals each day, more than 12,000 annually! With the generous support of local grocery stores, restaurants, service organizations and individuals, they will continue to provide meals for many years to come. Gleaners Kitchen also has a community garden and greenhouse to help supply the meals for those in need.
Light Hill provides a loving, compassionate, peaceful home for the terminally ill. Their welcoming home will affirm and support life, hope, and meaning for all who enter: guests approaching the final stages of life, their families, visitors, staff and our many volunteers.
Family Promise’s mission is “to help families experiencing homelessness and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response”. Their vision is a nation in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future.
The What If? Foundation invests in the future of Haitian children living in poverty. They work in close partnership with the grassroots organization Na Rive to deliver food, education, and community support programs that are transforming lives in the Ti Plas Kazo community of Port-au-Prince, and beyond.
