Day Center    4-Stage     2nd Chance

Loaves & Fishes is committed to serving with a hand-up

Our ongoing goal is to educate on the importance of moral living, & display a loving Christian faith while providing life strategies through education in the areas of decision making, daily life-living, skill building, employment, and other areas of an individual's life that cause impairment.  This has been provided successfully, but with limitations, weekly since 2009.  Reaching more on a daily basis directly depends on the ability to obtain a permanent location;

The Homeless often become chronically homeless because:

  • After being homeless for at least a year, the homeless are termed as chronic, and daily goals are to just survive;
    • The Day Center will provide the things we take for granted:
      • A fixed address, incoming mail, showers, clothing exchange
  • Those without a fixed address are subject to repeated denials of employment and termed as transient or untrustworthy;
    • The Day Center will provide telephones and a message center
  • They are viewed as drug addicts and alcoholics and ignored; while this is true with a very small percentage, a majority do not have that problem until homelessness occurs;
    • The Day Center will provide Christian avenues for rehabilitation
  • Day Labor is only a temporary source of income and will not suffice for providing needs on a daily basis;
    • The Day Center will provide the ability to build skills for long-term employment, transportation, and sack lunches daily.

Residential 4-Stage Program

Loaves & Fishes Day Center will incorporate as a later goal, a Residential 4-Stage program through the participants slow learning progression.  Each of the 4 stages could take up to 6 months and depending on the individual, less time may be needed to progress. 


This program will be implemented upon reaching funding requirements; please see the Home page and Donate Today page to help us reach the goal of $400,000 per year.  Your Pledge is greatly needed and appreciated!


Upon completion of Stage 3 the participant will transition into Stage 4 Living where helpful services will continue while living independently.  The participant will be responsible for utilizing all of the skills learned during Phases 1 - 3 as well as be responsible for a portion of living expenses. 


2nd Chance Program


Repeat Offenders and Felons have a higher chance of returning to prison due to the lack of willingness to hire on a prospective employer's part, and for this reason offenders are more likely to return to the familiar.  Valid fear of the what-if's withdraw an employer from hiring a person with a troubled past; known without saying, even by the 2nd Chance Program participant, reducing the participant's willingness to vigorously apply for employment only to return to the life that at-least, sustained.  We believe that Repeat Offenders and Felons should not fall under this classification throughout their entire lifetime and should be given a chance to show the public their worth.
