Church Community Services offers respect, hope, and compassion as we seek to assist Elkhart County families in need.
People come to us struggling to make ends meet. They are:
• Unemployed or working but not earning enough to support their families
• Single parents trying their best to raise their children
• Disabled or elderly, stretching a fixed income
Our food pantry is the largest in our area, serving an average of 2,000 households once each month. Our Seed to Feed program provides locally grown, fresh food to our guests as well as pantries and hot meal sites throughout our county. Through our pantry we also distribute bread donated by Bimbo Bakery to individuals and other agencies. Emergency financial assistance helps families avoid eviction, utility shut off, or the need to choose between gas in the car or essential prescription medicines.
Common Ground provides educational workshops to groups to promote understanding and break down cultural and economic barriers in our community.
Founded in 1968 by several churches, today CCS is an outreach arm of caring individuals, businesses, and organizations including over 50 churches.
