The House of Amos provides assistance to people in need through emergency food pantry operations and services designed to assist individuals in gaining healthy families, meaningful employment and achieving self-sufficiency. Our vision is to have a substantial, positive impact on nourishment, education, and health of the needy through the following services:

Resale Shop:
House of Amos has a small resale shop which gives people access to clothing, household goods and small appliances at a very reasonable cost. Proceeds from sales help fund our services but, more important, it helps people to acquire needed and wanted items they might otherwise not be able to afford.

We need your donations of clean, gently used items such as dishes, toasters, microwave ovens, DVD players, TVs, lamps, linens, towels, luggage, men's, women's and children's shoes and clothing.
