This is our mobile outreach program. We go out into the community indentifying homeless individuals and providing them with care bags. We also identify specific needs our citizens have and attempt to align them with the appropriate resources. Our care bags contain: nonperishable food items, toiletries, safety and emergency equipment, water and inspirational literature. We ensure that everyone we encounter knows that they are important and that someone cares about them.
