The Christian Service Center works to provide help with housing, utilities,
and medical expenses to persons who have financial emergencies. Clients are
also given help in finding other sources to answer their needs. Clients are
provided budget counseling, assistance in solving their problems and referrals
to other agencies to further meet their needs.
The food pantry is stocked by the local churches, the Pleasure Island Ministerial
Association, businesses, clubs, local citizens, and our winter visitors.
