Tricounty Family Ministries is a faith-based not-for-profit, ecumenical ministry providing food, clothing, medical care, counseling, transportation, shelter, financial assistance and other vital services to the less fortunate in the tricounty area. It offers a safe, compassionate, and inviting place for all people in need.
We offer a hand up rather than a hand out, bringing clients from a state of crisis to stability to self-sustaining members of the community.
_ We offer services to anyone in need and all are provided at no cost.
At least 96.8% of our budget goes directly to programs.
