Our faith in Christ inspires us to live out Jesus’ teachings by feeding the hungry in our communities. This mission unites us with people of every creed in a movement of compassion, service and positive change.
We value the health of each person we encounter, and strive to provide safe, nourishing food to those we serve. We believe that healthy lives are not possible without healthy food, a healthy environment, and healthy communities, so we work to build all three to break the cycle of poverty and hunger.
We work with kindness, openness, and joyful generosity to meet the individual needs of each person we encounter. We serve all people without judgement in a spirit of compassion and sensitivity. We listen to the story and needs of each person so that they know they are seen, heard and valued in a world where they may often feel invisible.
We respect the inherent worth and dignity of every person and treat all with justice, equity, and understanding. We honor the lives, ideas, concerns, and stories of those we serve to ensure they are treated with dignity in their time of need. We value our donors’ gifts and honor their intended purpose. We cherish our volunteers, and strive to ensure positive, impactful experiences each time they give their time to our cause.
We collaborate to change our community through strong relationships with individual community members, our partner agencies, community partners, businesses, and local government. Our shared mission of ‘feeding lives together’ drives us to be open, cooperative, and transparent to harness the power of a community in unison.
Our clinic strives to make sure women in our community are given the information and support they need when faced with an unplanned pregnancy and thinking about abortion.
All of our services are free and confidential. Under the direction and supervision of our medical director, Allan Joseph, MD, we are able to provide women with free pregnancy testing, limited OB ultrasounds, and options information.
Be empowered to make an informed decision regarding your pregnancy!

Boys and Girls Club of the CSRA
In 1952, Mr. E.W. Hagler established a place where youth in the Augusta community would have a safe place to go after school and during the summer. The first Club was a leased structure located at 1763 Broad Street. In 1959, the Graniteville Company donated 7 acres of land, and contributions from Arthur H. and Ernest B. Merry Foundation, the Silver Family, Roscoe Roberts, Merial Black Corey and the Anne Langdon Estate, opened a Boys Clubs of Augusta at 1903 Division Street in the Harrisburg community. The organization grew from one Club to 10 locations in the past 60 years. In the late 90s, the Clubs began accepting girls into the programs and the name was officially changed to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Augusta. The majority of our Clubs are located in Public Housing neighborhoods with the exception of our school sites. Formerly known as Boys & Girls Clubs of Augusta, the organization underwent a name change in the early 2000’s to Boys & Girls Clubs of the CSRA (BGCCSRA) to reflect our broad outreach in the community.
