SURVIVE A

CRISIS

We’re more than a local food pantry.  HCFS is here to help Kendall County citizens first survive a crisis and then learn to thrive in the community.

 

  • CRISIS:  A crisis can happen at any time:  the diagnosis of a life-threatening illness, the loss of a job, the end of a relationship, an automobile accident leaving a family without transportation, the loss of affordable childcare, substance abuse, mental illness or a sick child.

 

  • SURVIVE:  Survival includes first meeting the basic needs of each family.  Each crisis is different.  What most people have in common is that when there is a financial crisis, the ability to provide healthful groceries for the family becomes an enormous challenge.

IT COSTS $404 PER PERSON/YEAR TO HELP A FAMILY THROUGH THEIR CRISIS
