How we help

Food Pantry

We assist eligible individuals and familes with emergency food, reducing food insecurity in our community.


This program is a joint effort between VISTO and the community at-large, designed to offer life skills classes and role model support to empower individuals to make healthy choices for their families.

Backpack Buddies

Children who qualify for free and reduced meals at school or those referred by school personnel are eligible to receive delicious, nutritionally dense mini-meals every weekend throughout the school year.

Crisis Assistance

We strengthen families by keeping the lights on, emergency dental & Rx assist, we also offer gas vouchers for verifiable medical appts or job interviews.

Education & Referral

VISTO provides clients access to and teaches ways to utilize local resources including GED scholarships and parenting classes in order to lessen their reliance on charitable programs.
