Our Mission

Meet immediate needs while supporting long-term goals for our neighbors in need.

Who We Serve

Our services and programs exist to benefit families in our local area living at or below the poverty level or experiencing temporary financial hardship. Receiving this assistance and participating in our programs allows families in need to redirect their limited resources for other critical purposes, such as paying for housing, transportation, medicine, and education for their children.

What We Do

While most families have enough resources to provide food and household necessities for their loved ones, some families struggle to meet these most basic needs. Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Community Support Center responds to these needs by providing our neighbors (we don't call them clients) with a nourishing selection of food items and personal care supplies available through our choice pantry, providing them the dignity of shopping online for their weekly grocery orders. Additionally, we give those needing household necessities such as kitchenware, bed and bath linens, and small appliances with those essential items. The assistance provided by Bellbrook-Community Support Center helps bridge the gaps for neighbors needing emergency food and household necessities.

Beyond meeting our neighbors' immediate needs through direct service, Bellbrook-Community Support Center provides case management and connects our neighbors to a full range of wrap-around services. Through our one-on-one consultations, we help our neighbors establish a plan to meet their long-term goals and achieve economic mobility through job skill training and educational programming, which includes financial health strategies, computer skills, resume writing, and interviewing skills.

Most of what we do is in partnership with other regional organizations to avoid duplication of services and to be excellent stewards of our resources.

How We Succeed

Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Community Support Center thrives by receiving in-kind donations from the community and financial contributions from various generous donors. Additional funding comes from fundraising events during the year, grant funding, and a strong partnership with United Way of the Greater Dayton Area.

The Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Community Support Center depends on in-kind and financial donations from individuals, organizations, businesses, and corporations. We gladly accept food and personal care items for our pantry and new or gently used household necessities.
