KACS strives to create a community without poverty where everyone can live well. As inflation rises and the cost of living increases, more individuals, families, and seniors are coming to KACS for support.
With a donation, you can help provide food for the poor, emergency assistance for the homeless, crisis services for families and workshops to support those moving out of poverty. Together, we deliver hope.
Every month we are experiencing an increase in individuals, families, and seniors who come to KACS for support – many are coming to us for the first time.
Your donation is imperative, now more than ever, for KACS to continue our life-sustaining programs – KACS Food Cupboard, KACS Emergency Assistance Services, KACS Bridges Out of Poverty.
