Community Care Fellowship opens its doors to homeless and underserved adults (and non-school-aged children) each weekday, providing a place to wash clothes, take showers, enjoy a hot meal, receive one-on-one counseling, and more. We rely on monetary donations and volunteers (e.g., front desk, hygiene area, office receptionist, kitchen and meal serving, inventory, building maintenance) to give our community a safe place for rest and nourishment. We welcome both individual volunteers and groups (including student athletic teams, clubs, youth groups, etc.) to serve our guests.
We provide after-school care and tutoring for children living in the James A. Cayce Housing Project. Our Dare to Dream, Starfish, and ASK programs serve children from kindergarten to high-school-age students, providing them a safe place to complete homework, receive mentorship, and fellowship with others in the community. Volunteers are needed to help serve snacks, assist with crafts, help with homework, and read with the children. We encourage our children’s program volunteers to make a recurring commitment (for example, one or two days per week, each week) to provide consistency and foster relationships with the children. All volunteers must pass a background check.
Maintaining supplies is critical. Consider donating new, unopened food or hygiene items.
- Over the Counter pain relievers and allergy medications (acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, benadryl, etc.)
- Petroleum Jelly
- Baby Powder
- Pull-ups and size 6 diapers
Look for deals on non-perishable food at Dollar General, ALDI, and other discount stores to make the most difference for your money.
Hygiene & Personal Items
We’re always in need of everyday use items – from shampoo and toothpaste to over-the-counter cold medicine.
Clothing & Miscellaneous Items
Collecting packages of socks or t-shirts for those in need makes a great group project!
