Our mission is to foster hope for a better life for those facing food insecurity and for those without a permanent home by providing a hand up through innovative and compassionate programs with equality, dignity and respect.

In March of 2020, CTH took on the challenge of serving both the sheltered and unsheltered communities by providing high impact COVID RELIEF SERVICES. A year later CTH has served 345,161 unique individuals, translating into 69,032 families, all while distributing over 5,554,300 lbs. of nutrition. CTH and the COMMUNITY (both on site and out in the community) logged over 60,000 volunteer hours. Of all unique individual touches 38,800 were seniors. All of this was done under intense protocols to keep our team and the community safe. We are thankful that not a single volunteer contracted COVID from being at CTH. CTH is committed to continuing our currently established high impact COVID RELIEF SERVICES. Below you will find updated information on CTH Nutrition/Diaper and Pet Food distributions. We are humbled to have impacted so many and will continue to strive to do so in 2021. If you wish to support our efforts to serve those most vulnerable, please click this donation link.
