Community Support Agencies
In a bind?
First Christian Church's provides The Welcome Table meal, which includes provision of some groceries and sponsoring a free clothes closet - all being conducted 6-7 PM on Tuesday evenings..
We do not, however, provide direct financial relief or emergency lodging, which we refer out to the following faith-based and city-based relief agencies.
Please utilize the below sites. First Christian Church, like many Hampton congregations, is a supporter of H.E.L.P, Inc.
