Our Programs

 

 

Crisis Assistance

Many of our neighbors face unexpected illness, unemployment, fire, or a change in living status, with nowhere to turn. Crisis Assistance was the very first program we offered and is still the “front door” of our organization.

Food Pantry

We are Nassau’s major provider of food to people in need, operating the county’s largest food pantry and providing emergency food to individuals and families experiencing hunger, uncertain food supplies, and challenges with basic dietary needs. Our staff and volunteers, in conjunction with our many partners, collect donated fresh, frozen, packaged, and canned food and distribute it throughout the county. Through generous donations, we have recently been able to expand our programs to include fresh foods, nutritional education, and a teaching kitchen.

Health Services

We have greatly expanded our health services in conjunction with the opening of the Weaver Center, our new main office, at 1303 Jasmine Street in Fernandina Beach. We strive to be a medical home for adults in need in Nassau County, FL. Services are provided with affordable fees based on low-to-moderate incomes. Financial hardship is no longer a reason to be without quality healthcare.
