are currently meeting people by appointment only.

For Emergency Financial Assistance and Community Resources! 

Visit our Partners Page

to Connect Directly with Additional Resources!

Thank you to all our partners and volunteers so ready to assist our neighbors. We are currently not encouraging on campus or direct contact with volunteers, partnerships, or neighbors, but are meeting virtually with many resources for relief and long term recovery. Please arrange in advance if you need to  meet with us or our partners in person. We are grateful to our many partners who are doing what they do best to reach our food insecure and unemployed neighbors. 

We are committed to everyone’s health and safety.  CDC best practices are in effect when on campus and in shared areas, including the parking deck, courtyards, lobbies, stairways, hallways, conference rooms and bathrooms. Please wear a mask and practice social distancing. Hand sanitizing stations are located throughout the building. Limit 2 in elevator.

We are ready in the Help Hub to speak with neighbors who will inevitably find themselves in financial distress due to this time of work, health, nutrition, and senior, child and self care instability. Please help us in supporting the Help Hub to address unmet needs in uncertain times.

2019 Partner of the year: The Kairos Center

Described as a "hidden gem" in the Harrelson Center, the Kairos Center was recognized as Partner of the Year at the 8th Annual Thankful Hearts Luncheon.

The Kairos Center was “founded on the belief that God uniquely created each individual for a distinct and divine purpose.” The Kairos Center’s mission is “to help people discover their passion, purpose and power and to help them embark on the journey to experience their true destiny.” Their community engagement is extensive, providing resources for individuals to discover and pursue lifelong goals and healthier, more productive lives. Glenda Tate, Director, leads coursework, coaching and mentoring opportunities covering topics such as education planning and achievements; financial literacy and stability; business planning and entrepreneurship; and life purpose and challenges support. As she explains, “when someone starts a new business, they can change the trajectory of poverty for themselves and their family.”
