Calling All Angels Mission



Offering a hand up, not a hand out. Lifting up those among us in need.



Join us in:


  • Combating hunger and homelessnes


  • Helping individuals and families in need


  • Paying it forward to improve the lives of those in our community most in need


"We believe it is imperative to help out with the immediate need, yes. But it is of more importance to help people be self sustaining in the long run. Only then can real change in a person's situation be effected. And we are attempting to do this through various educational programs we are working to implement." - Charles Reynolds, board member Calling All Angels Mission


It is more blessed to give than to receive.” - Acts 20:35


No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” - Aesop


I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul.” - Maya Angelou



WHAT WE DO AND HOW WE DO IT



FOOD PANTRY

  • We provide the Ecumenical Food Pantry a location for people to drop off food donations during our hours of operation (Mon-Sat, 10am-5pm).

  • We have provided the Food Pantry with monetary donations (which they need now more than ever, since their cost of operation just went up $13,000 a year)


PARTENRSHIPS

  • We provide clothing (free of charge) to referred clients of our partners. These include Hands of Hope, the Food Pantry, Safe Haven, TriState Pregnancy. We also do this for those referred by local churches and government agencies such as the Area Agency on Aging.

  • Clothing is provided twice a year, again, free of charge.

  • Our close relationships with our partner organizations allows us to be able to provide information and referral services to those in our community in need.

  • We provide household items when necessary for clients of our partner organizations.

  • We provide monetary assistance to our other partner charities, when we can (notably during our annual event)


DIRECT ASSISTANCE

  • We provide all these services for those who come in and directly ask for help.

  • We also assist people, when we can, with financial assistance. (Past examples have been motel costs for a veteran traveling through the area as he waits for benefit money to catch up to him; car repairs so that people can get to work and don't lose their homes; monetary help to pay for prescription costs.)


EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH

  • Our Educational Outreach provides awareness raising information (every day but especially during our Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Event each year), information on healthier lifestyle choices by means of daily conversations and informational brochures, jobs advice via our Facebook presence.

  • We have several future projects in the planning stages to further assist those in our community in need; such as:

  • Healthy Eating Brochure - working to produce a pamphlet on how to eat healthier. With Food Insecurity still at unacceptable levels, one of the main causes is that people are unaware of how to budget their money, time and resources to provide healthier alternatives to their current food plans. Writer quote $320. Printer quote $730.22. Total needed, $1050.22.


JOBS, COMMUNITY SERVICE

  • We also partner with agencies like Pike County Workforce Development and Pike County County Assistance Office in order to provide work locations for their summer youth program and county assistance community service requirements. And we offer community service opportunities for those in our justice system, providing a second chance for those who need it.

  • We refer people to these resources for resume and job assistance.

Calling All Angels Thrift Shoppe

The thrift shop acts as our public view of the non-profit. It is located at 214 E Harford Street in Milford, PA. The entrance is on the East John Street side of the building. Here we take in donations to sell at low costs so that people who are on a limited budget can shop. It is where we receive food donations to send to the Ecumenical Food Pantry. It is where we receive the individuals and families in need referred to us by local churches, organizations and agencies so they can shop for clothing (and other items on an as needed basis) twice a year for free. And it is essentially where people have come to know since we opened in 2011 that we are here to help our neighbors in the community in need. Visit our website or the FACEBOOK page for the shop and LIKE it to keep up with the happenings there.


TESTIMONIALS


" I went yesterday for the first time... It's bigger inside than I thought it was! Nice people running the store. Got to listen to the Lord of the rings soundtrack while shopping which was an extremely pleasant surprise for me. They had a wide variety of things for good prices. I'll go back when I'm in the area again!" ~ Lizz Codner

Pike County Hands of Hope

Pike County Hands of Hope is a Christ Centered Organization dedicated to providing compassion and hope to the homeless and near homeless families and individuals by meeting their basic and urgent needs of food, clothing and shelter. Go to their website or FACEBOOK page for more information.

Safe Haven of Pike County

November 8, 2014 will be the twenty-third anniversary of the filing of the Articles of Incorporation for Survivors’ Resources, Inc., which is now known as Safe Haven of Pike County, Inc. Indeed, anyone familiar with Safe Haven should not be surprised by our “small but mighty” approach to service. For over twenty years, Safe Haven has represented the collective passion and vision of its committed founders, employees, donors, volunteers, and Board members, all of whom reflect the tremendous spirit of caring and community in Pike County. On June 25, 1991, a group of local women met to address the problem of providing crisis services to domestic and sexual violence survivors and their loved ones in Pike County. Their efforts and collective vision resulted in the development of the mission and philosophy of what would become Survivors’ Resources, Inc., which incorporated on November 8, 1991. Survivors’ Resources, Inc., achieved 501(c)(3) non-profit status in 1993.


For more information or to contact Safe Haven, visit their website or FACEBOOK page.

Ecumenical Food Pantry of Pike County


"The food distributed at The Ecumenical Food Pantry come from a variety of sources. We depend largely on monetary and food donations from individuals, businesses, civic organizations. We also receive funding from annual grants from Second Harvest, United Way, and local and state organizations.

In addition to regular weekly distributions, we offer enhanced food offerings at Thanksgiving and Christmas time that include many holiday meal staples such as turkeys and hams. We are also the local distribution site for a federally subsidized monthly food box program for senior citizens living in poverty.

We are located in the basement of Good Shepherd Church, are entirely staffed by volunteers and have almost no operating overhead."
