About Project: NEEDS
St. Paul’s United Methodist Church received a request to serve as a counting site for the first-ever homeless census count in March 1990. A warm breakfast was served and clothes, blankets, and hygiene supplies were distributed with the aid of willing volunteers. Many volunteers became aware of the needs of the homeless in our neighborhood as a result of the interactions between church members and the homeless. One individual in particular was so moved that he wanted to embrace the homeless community and let them know that there were people out there who genuinely cared. Project: NEEDS was conceived as a result of this steadfast commitment.
Project: NEEDS is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides direct assistance to low-income families and individuals in need. They strive to meet the basic needs of those they serve with compassion, dignity and respect.
Every Tuesday from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m., a hearty, home-cooked supper is provided. When the pantry is open on Tuesday nights and Thursday mornings, clothing is distributed (when goods are available).
The food pantry that is accessible to the homeless in our neighborhood on the first and third Thursday of the month from 9 to 11 a.m.
