Our Food and Clothing Banks are both entirely volunteer run and offer important basic needs support for women accessing our services. Based on Maslow’s hierarchy of need, we believe that only when our basic needs are met, are we able to attend to our personal healing. We have found that both of these services have increased in need with the current economic environment. We thank the dedication of our volunteers for the success of these resources.
“As a volunteer of Amelia Rising, I have been humbled by how the services of both a food bank and clothing bank can lift up a woman’s spirit, in her time of crisis.” – Connie Hoffman
“…the availability of both a clothing bank and a food bank is absolutely invaluable. Knowing there is an easily accessible resource out there for women like myself, gives an incredible sense of peace and self worth because I can get help for my family, at points in life where I don’t want to face the intruding questions elsewhere.”
