Sacred Heart Community Service
Louise Benson founded Sacred Heart Community Service in 1964 to feed hungry families in her neighborhood. Over 50 years later, the organization continues to provide both families and individuals with essential needs while also offering innovative programs that assist families with achieving lifelong economic self-sufficiency and a grassroots organizing network that addresses the root causes and consequences of poverty.
Our mission is to build a community free from poverty by creating hope, opportunity, and action. We provide essential services, work together to improve our lives, advocate for justice, and inspire our community to love, serve, and share.
