Our mission is to help the poor, disabled, disadvantaged and elderly with the basic needs of food, clothing, housing and medical expenses. We strive to help those who are experiencing a “crisis” in their lives. This crisis may be financial because of the loss of employment, medical because of the illness of a family member, or psychological because of a stressful situation in daily life.
Clients receive help from the Christian Assistance Network in many different ways. All financial assistance is paid directly to a business, landlord, vendor, etc.; no cash handouts are given. We help as a financial and a skill-building resource. We also help clients improve their skills. Each client is assessed through an intake process, and each individual’s or family’s needs are met on a case by case basis.
