Year 2022 Impact

Looking back over 2022, there were many accomplishments in partnership with more than 150 entities -- faith communities, civic organizations, local businesses, and individuals -- to support CCHASM programs and services. Please consider making a donation to support our ongoing efforts.​​​

M.A. Weeks Thanksgiving Meal Program

At the M.A. Weeks Thanksgiving Program, honoring CCHASM's founder Mary Anne Weeks, roughly 12,000 individuals were helped through 4,192 Thanksgiving meal bags.

With approximately 400 volunteers, we were able to support our neighbors in need with a drive-through, contactless pick-up format. The Thanksgiving Meal Package is a grocery bag filled with pre-determined foods (cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, etc.) that represents about a $25 value. Each registered guest received a $15 grocery gift card from a local grocery store for perishable items such as turkey, butter, or milk. Click here to event recent media coverage.

Food Assistance Program

Almost 9,400 received food assistance from more than 20 food pantries through our church alliance partners.  

 

CCHASM's food assistance program aids families and individuals who have experienced or are experiencing an emergency that limits their funds for essential items such as food. This program is intended to help stretch and supplement other resources such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP/Food stamps), WIC, and TANF. 

 

CCHASM assists the pantries with educational information about the types and quantities of food to stock and financial literacy resources.

Financial Assistance Program

Approximately 44 families were assisted with $12,600 in emergency financial assistance. In 2021, we provided $34,900 in financial assistance to with utilities, mortgage/rent, and emergency car repairs, through a $100,000 Crisis Financial Support (CFS) Program created in 2020. We remain committed to providing future resources in the wake of the Coronavirus outbreak.

A total of 42 women received professional/business attire during socially-distanced shopping at our Women's Clothing Cottage. The location was back to regular hours after the prior year's closure due to COVID restrictions.

Many of CCHASM's female clients find themselves re-entering or unexpectedly returning to the workplace, some for the first time.

 

CCHASM provides "office-appropriate" clothing such as suits, pants, skirts, dresses, and shoes for an interview or a job. Women may "shop" free of charge for either interview clothing or a week's worth of office-appropriate garments.
