Current Needs Each week we attempt, with the Lord’s help, to provide those who attend Sunday School and our worship service with a little food and their five most needed items.  Year round, we support the recovery of homeless men through a residential program.   Additionally, we help provide food security for families in poverty through our food cooperative program.  Your gifts are 100% tax deductible.  Jesus Place is recognized by the IRS as a 501 (C) (3) nonprofit organization.
