DONATION NEEDS

JCOC provides Emergency, Transitional and Permanent Supportive Housing for 74 men and women. While in our program, residents are provided with 3 meals a day, clothing and personal hygiene products. When they move into their own home, it is our goal to provide them with food and hygiene care packages as well as household items and furniture to get them started.

In addition, we serve a community dinner to those in need 365 days a year as well as offer food assistance through our Food Pantry and Family Food Box Programs to help them make it to their next paycheck and not have to make the impossible decision of heating their home or feeding their family.
