In 1975, the Caswell Parish was formed through a coalition of local churches who saw the overwhelming needs in Caswell County. The churches realized that working alone they could not meet the emergency needs of the poor but that by pooling their resources and centralizing a ministry, they could have a significant impact on reducing hunger and other issues besetting the poor in our county. So, the Parish was born. The Parish has served thousands through our faith-based programs over the years by seeking to end hunger and to assist those in emergency situations. We are blessed to continue helping the needy among us.
The Caswell Parish is the primary source of emergency food and utilities assistance for those who are underserved by other resources and works closely with the county DSS to identify those who need service. Through food, clothing and utility assistance, the parish gives hope and support to those in need. With the support and combined resources of local multi-denominational churches, charities and private businesses, we are making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
As we look to the future, the Caswell Parish is focused on identifying additional community needs and developing programs to better serve our clients. If you would like more information on the Caswell County Parish, please email [email protected] or call 336-694-6428.
Many, many thanks to those listed below as well as our VOLUNTEERS whose devotion to the Caswell Parish continue to make this mission possible.
