Feed the Hungry

Nearly 25% of Waterbury residents live below the poverty line. Many people struggle to put food on the table because 70% of their paycheck goes to pay rent. Our food pantry program provides food free of charge to anyone who is hungry, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, or socioeconomic group.

shelter the homeless

Shelter the Homeless

We offer short-term, temporary, emergency housing free of charge to those in need of safe refuge, regardless of age, gender, national origin, ethnic background, religion, or socioeconomic group. Often men staying in our shelter will enter our Recovery Program to address issues related to substance abuse.


We are a non-profit faith-based ministry dedicated to serve the addicted, feed the hungry and shelter the homeless.


The support you provide to the Recovery Center helps us continue to provide the basic needs of so many within the Greater Waterbury area.


We rely on the generosity of our community to support the work in which we have been called to. Would you consider partnering with us to make a difference in the lives of those who so desperately need our support?


We have many opportunities to help the ministry care for those in need and serve the community.
