Why Your Gifts Matter

Your financial support does more than provide access to food, clothing, and household goods to local families battling poverty. It also provides a safe and empowering community of people who see each person that walks through our doors as a uniquely gifted individual.

Our participants say it best:

"In less than two years at Salt & Light, I've regained my self-worth."

"I've learned retail skills here that helped me find a job!"

"All I used to do was sit at home. Now I come and love spending time with other people that work here. At the same time, I am earning credit for food!"

Together we are changing lives and transforming our community.​


We believe that people struggling with poverty are not projects.  As a relational ministry, we invite you to partner with us by shopping in our stores, volunteering your time, and donating your goods and finances. 

At Salt & Light, we help community members gain access to food, clothing, and household goods, in spite of financial obstacles. More importantly, we offer a COMMUNITY of people to empower, affirm, and encourage everyone that walks through our doors.
