Your Donations Help Us To Help Them!
Although not always visible; the poor, the hungry, the oppressed and frightened are all around us, even here in Mercer County. Our Home Family Resource Center works to strengthen individuals and families in the community by providing programs that address immediate needs.
Our Home Family Resource Center is a 501(c)(3) organization and our work is carried out through four distinct programs: Direct Services & Referral, Family Crisis Network, Raft Supervised Visitation Center, and Family & Children First Council. Each program seeks to assist people in need, motivate them to develop and achieve their goals, and inspire their confidence and self-sufficiency. Our Home also coordinates several special county-wide projects, including school supply drives, coat drives, and the Mercer County Angel Tree program. Your financial support of Our Home provides funding to continue and expand these programs as we address the unmet needs of folks here in Mercer County.
Every donation is significant and will make an immediate difference in someone’s life. If you would like to donate to Our Home Family Resource Center or to one of the specific programs in the organization, you may do so on-line, through the mail, or in person.
