Joseph’s Storehouse Food Bank
Joseph's Storehouse Food Bank began out of a weekly gathering of local pastors, church and business leaders.
After much prayer and discussion the vision for Joseph's Storehouse (Food for the Hungry, Clothes for the Naked, and Help for the Hurting...) was embraced in December of 1998. Since then literally thousands of tons of food, clothing, blankets and other resources have been distributed to marginalized families throughout the community.
Our Joseph's Storehouse cargo trucks travel throughout Southern California picking up tons of fresh food donated daily by several large grocery chains. We also purchase boxed staples at discounted prices to serve thousands of poor and need families throughout the region each and every month.

The Resource Center
During these tough economic times finding a job can be a very difficult prospect. Many have become a "prisoner" to hopelessness and despair in obtaining suitable employment and have given up looking for work. Some also have become "prisoner" to a welfare system that inhibits their drive and motivation to become employed - perhaps even for the first time.
The Resource Center was created to offer assistance to anyone that is seeking to become employed and move forward in life. We provide an array of services including resume writing, interview training, job resources, computer classes, E.S.L. classes and G.E.D. classes.
"Life Skills" coaching is also made availabe by a dedicated team of personal counselors, working one on one with each individual. A bank of computers to submit on-line applications and telephones are also made available to prospective job seekers. It is our goal to help employable people experience the joy and blessing of finding a good paying job that sustains themselves and their families.
For the past several years the Blessing Center has coordinated both a nightly Homeless Center as well as a Cold Weather Shelter Program (40 degrees or under or raining) for homeless families and individuals living in our community. Teams of caring and committed volunteers serve nightly dinners and 30 to 40 sack lunches are distributed on a daily basis. Free clothing and sleeping bags are also made available. We are currently working with civic leadership in an effort to establish a full service Homeless Center to better provide for "the least among us."
