Tricounty Family Ministries is a faith-based not-for-profit, ecumenical ministry providing food, clothing, medical care, counseling, transportation, shelter, financial assistance and other vital services to the less fortunate in the tricounty area. It offers a safe, compassionate, and inviting place for all people in need.
We offer a hand up rather than a hand out, bringing clients from a state of crisis to stability to self-sustaining members of the community.
_ We offer services to anyone in need and all are provided at no cost.
At least 96.8% of our budget goes directly to programs.

Christmas in july
Christmas is a giving time, and that usually means plenty of donations to our food pantry and clothes house and program funding. Come summer, not so much.
It isn’t because people aren’t generous, it’s simply they don’t think about it as schedules are filled with summer activities.
Christmas in July is intended to ease the dry spell. Together we can change lives all summer long! Click on the image below to make a donation today!
