Cristo Rey Community Center Services
From feeding hungry children to providing health care and counseling services, Cristo Rey Community Center works to build stronger families and community ties. We understand that the roots of poverty are oftentimes embedded in more than just temporary difficulties; for this reason CRCC offers a wide range of services designed to meet the differing needs of families, seniors, children and all individuals in need.
Cristo Rey’s Food Distribution program distributes fresh fruit and produce to vulnerable individuals and families who are food insecure or suffer from hunger on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month.
CRCC serves hot breakfast every weekday and sack lunches during the lunch hour.
CRCC has several free-food programs, clients may utilize one or all of them! Services have different eligibility requirements but if you do not qualify for one you will qualify for another.
Our trained, professional financial counselors will sit down with you one-on-one, and learn about your specific situation – your hopes, dream and goals. We will help you create a budget, improve your credit score, pay down your debt, access safe and affordable bank accounts, and save money for the future.

The Prescription Assistance program was developed to help low-income individuals access prescriptions they desperately need, so they don’t have to choose between vital medications or their basic needs. The service works with clients every step of the way, from completing complex paperwork, to picking up their medication. Emergency vouchers are also available through the program under certain circumstances.
Senior Citizens Program
The Senior Citizen Program is for community members over the age of 60. Activities and crafts are provided on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:00am-3:00pm (except June-August). Breakfast and lunch are available in our Community Kitchen. Many participants primarily speak Spanish and are able to socialize comfortably while participating in enjoyable gatherings.
Cristo Rey Community Center houses a gymnasium where town-hall and community information meetings can be held, along with other local events sponsored by the Community Center. If you or your organization would like to be involved in hosting an event at Cristo Rey, please contact us for more details!
