About TOUCH- Together Our Unity Can Heal

Location:

209 Route 9 W, Congers, NY 10920, US

Mission Statement

Since 1989, TOUCH-Together Our Unity Can Heal, has provided compassionate services to our friends and neighbors living with HIV, diabetes, heart disease, Hepatitis C and other chronic illnesses. TOUCH distributes more than 400,000 meals per year to over 500 families dealing with chronic illness.

Description

TOUCH prevents suffering and improves quality of life by providing medical case management, nutritional counseling, healthy food options, and wellness support groups. Our "Get Fresh" and Eating Well Nutrition Therapy Programs prevent hunger and improve health outcomes for our members. We offer a welcoming, safe environment free of stigma for all those we serve, including vulnerable populations who too often experience cultural and social barriers to receiving the services that can change their lives for the better.
TOUCH also manages Federal Hunger Prevention & Nutrition Assistance Programs (HPNAP) and FEMA Emergency Food and Shelter Programs. Our Food Recovery Program saved over 40,000 pounds of consumable food in 2018 that would otherwise have gone into landfills-- feeding those in need and benefitting our environment.
Volunteers, grants and individual donations are all essential to our continued success in serving our community. We welcome your support and personal involvement in building a healthier community where no one is left behind.
