Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Our mission is to strengthen families with children struggling with the ill effects of poverty through community involvement.
Christian Services assists families that meet Federal Poverty Guidelines and works closely with the Department of Social Services to assist case workers with their clients so that they can become productive / self sufficient members of the community. Christian Services provides aid to families with children meeting Federal guidelines to include: food and clothing, fees for field trips for children, and deposits for utilities and housing.
Christian Services provides critical needs assistance to families in Lancaster County, operates a Family Thrift Store, a Food Pantry that serves over 850 families each month, Free Employability Skills Training for underemployed or unemployed adults, and administers the Angel Tree Program at Christmas for approximately 1,000 impoverished children.
