Every day we get calls from homeless men and women. The women are desperate and the children are crying. The men are out of work. They are living in their pickups and haven’t eaten in days. Daily we open our doors and our hearts….every day for the past fifteen years to help these people. At the Carthage Crisis Center we have learned to keep our hands open.

For a number of years we had very little food to feed our residents and staff a the Crisis Center. We prayed and we started getting a few calls offering us some food. We opened our hands and shared our excess with others. More calls came and we kept our hands open.

Today we are blessed with food and WE WANT MORE. We are keeping our Hands Open. We have a food Network of fifty organizations that we supply food to now. Hundreds of hungry families are being helped every month. Please keep your hands OPEN.
