Impact Resource Center
For as long as Impact has been in existence, it has been devoted to assisting people in need of food and other daily necessities. What began as literally a food pantry has expanded to a facility that provides millions of pounds of food a year, supplied by food drives by local churches, the Houston Food Bank and other local agencies, local restaurants and grocery stores, and financial donations from our supporters. It has also expanded to include clothing, furniture, and other household goods, and it serves as a distribution point for FEMA. For many of the individuals and families at Impact, the Resource Center was their first point of contact.
The Resource Center supplies families and individuals with prepared meals, pantry staples, clothes, furniture, and other necessities. Through its partnership with Arms of Hope and other agencies it also provides Parenting classes, Financial Management classes, and Health and Wellness Fairs and classes to its clients. The staff and volunteers who work in the Center make it their goal to treat all of the recipients with respect and dignity, and to show them the unconditional love of God. The Center is open to everyone in need and does not discriminate.
Many local churches support the Resource Center through different types of food drives and Second Servings and Service Corporation International provide surplus prepared meals. The Resource Center also receives millions of pounds per year of groceries and non food donations from multiple Sam’s Clubs, Walmarts, as well as Costco and Target. All this food and supplies are distributed to more than a thousand or more needy families every other week or provided in the form of a hot meal out of Impact’s kitchen. Additionally, several local churches serve as satellites to the Resource Center by providing bags of food to their at-risk members.
The opportunities for volunteering your time and talents abound. There are a wide range of opportunities, from leading bible studies, delivering food, clothing or other necessities to a needy person, organizing food and clothes, or working in our warehouse.
