Hundreds of children are hungry, and many have no place to sleep tonight.
The Sharing Center offers help & hope.
Video Case Study
"We went from upper middle class
to feeling we were at rock bottom."
34% of people needing food are children
and the majority of our clients are among
the "working poor".
Video Case Study
"Just knowing someone cared enough
to share with me during this time
improved my whole attitude."
