Where All Can Thrive
A ministry of the faith communities of Yates County that offers a safe, welcoming, respectful space, and a compassionate staff dedicated to helping individuals in immediate need. We do this by assisting with food, dry goods, referral services, vouchers, New Hope Cancer Care support, long range planning, building relationships with the people we serve, prayer, and so much more.
Our emergency food cupboard is available for Yates County residents on Wednesdays and Fridays, and whenever the Keuka Food Pantry is not open. People are welcome to come on these days to help supplement their household food supply until the Pantry reopens. “Needs ‘N Things” is our dry goods ministry (diapers, deodorant, laundry detergent, shampoo, soap, etc.) and can be accessed once a month by a household member.
We also work closely with many of the agencies in and around Yates County to help bridge the gap, and cross from difficult times to better times. Referrals, education and support are available from a number of sources to help the under-and-unemployed, those challenged by addiction, cancer, emotional or mental crisis; or to access winterization, clothing, child-care/support, pregnancy education, budgeting and housing programs.
Who is served by The Living Well? Who ever walks through the door … young or old, black or white, homeless, hungry, or frightened. Or volunteer, guest, worshiper or donor, Christian or not … all are served with gratitude, and to the best of our abilities and resources.
“…whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
