We help with basic needs in times of emergency or financial crisis...

The SHARE Fund is a registered 501c3 nonprofit charitable outreach agency which provides various types of material and financial support to families and individuals in need during emergencies or times of severe hardship. Our primary goal is to provide the needed resources of food, shelter, and clothing


We reach out to our neighbors in need to help during difficult times, provide innovative program services to guide families on a path to self-sufficiency, and refer to other agencies & resources when eligible, thus maximizing aid.

Giving Others Hope Through Sharing

Hunger is a worldwide problem and food insecurity affects many people in our own community. Our program, Gerry's Emergency Food Pantry, is the largest local provider of free supplemental food resources to prevent or alleviate hunger.

Everybody should have a home. Through our Emergency Financial Assistance Program, the SHARE Fund helps prevent homelessness and addresses the need for healthy homes in our community. We help with security deposits, rent, basic utilities, and urgent medical needs.

Clothing is a basic need and everyone should have access to adequate clothing. The SHARE Fund's Community Clothing Shop is a low-cost thrift store open to the public to generate funds for our emergency relief programs AND offers FREE shopping for people in need.
