“I was hungry and you fed me, thirsty and you gave me a drink. I was homeless and you gave me a room.” Matthew 25:35
Our clients are people just like you and me…
Our goal is to see the face of Christ in each client who enters our door and to treat each client with respect. Our volunteers care for each client on an individual basis. Programs are administered with no regard to race, religion, country of origin or gender. Our families live paycheck to paycheck and even a small emergency expense can cause serious crises to their household.
The Corpus Christi Food Pantry helps prevent hunger.
Our goal is to serve our clients while preserving their dignity. We provide food, basic toiletries and basic cleaning supplies to all Nashua residents who are in need. Our goal is to provide 3 to 5 days of food per client every 21 days. We are unique in that each client chooses their supplies from a list of what’s available and then these items are bagged for them to take home immediately.
The Food Pantry may also supply a simple gift for a child’s birthday or basic back-to-school supplies during a client’s visit. Additionally Thanksgiving and Easter food basket distributions occur coordinated with the local community. In special support of our seniors Corpus Christi Food Pantry delivers food to three low income elderly housing complexes in Nashua once a week. Please call to schedule an appointment with the Food Pantry, or go to the “Contact Us” link at the top of this page. The Corpus Christi Food Pantry coordinates and shares ideas with other Nashua area Food Pantry organizations.
The Corpus Christi Assistance program helps to prevent homelessness. The Assistance Program provides a short term safety net for those who do not qualify for government assistance or for whom that assistance is insufficient or delayed. Working directly with clients one-on-one via phone or in the office Corpus Christi Assistance identifies and offers practical information in dealing with the social services network within Greater Nashua. We provide all clients with financial guidance (referrals, budgeting, planning and advocacy). Those clients who are eligible also receive help to prevent evictions and utility shut-offs, to assist with transportation, education and other basic needs. The Assistance program works in collaboration with the Greater Nashua Financial Assistance Network. Please call to schedule an appointment with the Assistance program, or go to the “Contact Us” link at the top of this page.
