LAMBERT CENTER

The Center is a welcome daytime haven of support for people who have a variety of obstacles in life that may include chronic mental illness, substance abuse recovery issues, homelessness or any combination of the above.

The church provides periodic meals to clients, donates needed items, and assists with the annual yard sale. Church member Jeanette Lambert started and operates the center and emphatically states, “The Lord says we should help the sick and feed the poor, and that includes EVERYONE.”

What can you do to help?

  • Pray for participants at the Center that they will become well are kept safe, warm, and well fed and ultimately gain the ability to function well in society.

  • Donate items such as batteries, candles, toilet paper, and food.

  • Help with the periodic meals our church provides.

  • Volunteer to visit, play cards, supervise, or transport clients to services.
