Beyond Emergency Services

In addition to providing meals, the Sunday Soup Kitchen is an opportunity for clients to receive information and referral services. Unlike many volunteer-staffed emergency food programs, CCC’s experienced, professional staff and trained Outreach Volunteers help individuals and families obtain the services that can resolve emergency and crisis situations at the moment, and get them on track to leading more independent lives in the future. CCC utilizes the Sunday Soup Kitchen to make referrals to: health screenings, medical and alcohol/substance abuse programs, clothing distribution, benefits/entitlements, legal services, housing and employment assistance, rapid HIV testing, and other social service programs.
