Help and Hope for Those in Greatest Need 

More than 16 percent of Grand Island residents live below the federal poverty line.

We come alongside individuals and families who are suffering from the effects of poverty, offering food, shelter, compassion and support to alleviate both the obvious and the subtle impact of poverty.


How We Help Overcome Poverty

Men's Emergency Shelter  |  Open daily from 8 p.m. - 8 a.m. 
Many of us take food, shelter, a hot shower and a comfortable bed for granted, but for those without a roof over their heads, what we consider basic necessities are luxuries. Our shelter provides a haven for men who have no place to turn, offering them a safe place to rest and receive compassionate care.  

Emergency Services 
Tragedy and misfortune can strike at any time, which is why we provide clothing, household goods and furniture for individuals and families who are struggling to recover from a financial crisis or another disaster.  

Utility Assistance
No one should have to choose between heating their home during the frigid winter months and putting food on the table, and yet, sadly, many are forced to make that very choice. That's why we are grateful to work with Black Hills Energy to offer utility assistance via HeatShare funds. Learn more about HeatShare. 

Food Programs
We offer a daily lunch and dinner program and a food pantry. Learn more about how we cure hunger.

Pathway of Hope
The goal of Pathway of Hope is to guide families with children 18 years and younger through crisis to a place of stability in order to ultimately break the intergenerational cycle of poverty. We offer strengths-based casework, providing services such as:

  • financial counseling and planning
  • goal setting with manageable action steps
  • job training, referrals and employment assistance
  • assistance with securing housing and child care
  • emotional and spiritual support 

Pathway of Hope works with people where they are, offering practical guidance to help families overcome obstacles and achieve their big-picture goals, one step at a time.
