Household and Emergency Assistance Programs

Families who receive household assistance will have their basic, critical needs met which will allow EMCC to work with them on a longer term plan and entry into Strategies to Empower and Promote Success. Interested persons can participate in the Empower and Promote Success Program -- a stabilization program used to prepare residents for future asset development strategies. Empower and Promote Success Program is a program within our (Center for Working Families - CWF).

The EMCC Food Pantry is always in high demand. Families in the Martindale-Brightwood area are our first priority but we will not turn anyone away. For persons residing outside our service area we will refer you to a pantry within your neighborhood. 

Our pantry not only provides food to families in need but with the assistance of our partners our Pantry also provides food to many of our programs including our childcare ministry, senior angels, and afterschool programs.  

Our pantry also provides other important items families need like toothpaste, toilet paper, soaps, laundry detergents, and other household necessities.

With the popularity of our food pantry also come challenges. We are always in need of help to keep our shelves stocked with the foods and household items families need. We accept donations Monday-Through Friday between 9:00am & 4:00pm.
