What We Do

Furthering our cause is the most important goal of our organization. We seek to support, empower, and provide high quality resources to our community in a safe and secure environment. Our success isn’t measured in terms of wealth or profit margin, but by the value we provide to those we serve.

Food Pantry

The Friendly Center Food Pantries serve people in need by offering a source of nourishment to families who are food insecure. This enables families to focus on other important aspects of life, like paying bills or finding employment. 

The food pantry is held on Tuesdays 10:00- 12:45 PM and on Thursdays from 3:00-5:45 PM.  To participate, just bring your ID and 1 proof of address. 

Free Lunch

Everyone deserves to have a healthy, hearty meal. Unfortunately, many people lack the opportunity of eating every day.  The Friendly Center is delighted to share a hot meal with our community daily from 1-2 PM EST.

Community Outreach

With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential. The Friendly Center hosts several events each year to connect and support the community.   Check our upcoming events page for any upcoming outreach events.
