The poverty rate in Southwestern Adams County is almost 13% (with some areas as high as 29%). Some 47,000 of our neighbors are in need of help with food, clothing and everyday necessities. It’s estimated that more than 20,000 children in this area are living below poverty level. We need volunteers and donations (food and money) to address these important needs.
We conduct three food pantries per month in Thornton – one at Holy Cross, one at Regis University North Campus, and a third one at Pine Lakes Ranch. Client households can receive food without proof of residency. Just sign in with name, address and phone number (we ask for this information only so we can notify you in case of a food recall).
Wholesome food for families in need.
Emergency utility bill assistance to avoid shutoff.
