“Our Mission is to support the basic needs of those in our community such as housing, food, clothing, and coordinated services.”

“I was introduced to Basic Needs many many years ago when I was living through difficult financial troubles and my church referred me to apply for a voucher...I simply want to say thank you for helping me in a much difficult time in my life and being so compassionate and showing me and my daughter so much love.”
