What we do...

Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we strive to meet our neighbors' daily needs and offer hope and love to those in need; the homeless, the unemployed, families in transition or in crisis, and the working poor, families that simply cannot make it through the month financially.

You Can Help...

Trusting in Christ's love and mercy, we aspire to improve the well-being of our neighbors in need; the homeless, the unemployed, families in transition or in crisis, and the working poor, families that simply cannot make it through the month financially... BUT without your help The Bishop Griffin Resource Center would simply cease to exist, AND thankfully there are many ways that you can help!
