Community Outreaching


The goal of the pantry is to reach out to those in our communities who are in need and provide them with support to help them meet their personal needs, House of Restoration Community Outreach also Collaborates with churches, in our area to help our Community who are facing a hardship. “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” Our Goal is to in-power them with resources.   Providing groceries and clothing for people in the community. Supplying the needs of hungry is one of our goals, of the food pantry. We also believe in empowering the community about hunger and collaborating with other resources that will help address basic human needs.
