With a mission grounded in love, and a vision to Do More Good, Asbury First embraces outreach to the community as one of our core values. For over 50 years, we have responded to the needs in our community by offering warm meals, clothing, household supplies, laundry facilities, medical care, social work counsel, and more. 1010 East Ave, a historic building we have owned since 1943, will be the site of our future Outreach Center, a fully integrated and accessible space.
Since March 2020, it has been a challenging time for us all. The COVID-19 pandemic has required us to make significant adjustments, which have impacted our personal lives and our church community.

When someone needs to get back on their feet, they often need multiple services: from a physical to a haircut, to an outfit for an interview for the job itself, to food in their bellies.
With your help, it is time to Bring It Home and get the Outreach Center built.
