We are a 100% volunteer-run organization providing individuals and families in need in Parker, Elizabeth and Franktown with food, limited financial assistance and connections to support services via our unique "ten visits to self-sufficiency" model. Caring volunteers ensure clients are treated with compassion, respect, dignity and confidentiality. We are supported by generous donations from our community and via local food drives conducted throughout the year.
Together We Make a Difference
