Programs

Our two signature programs are the Food Pantry, in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank and private donors, and a Clothing/Shoe Distribution Closet. WCWS also provides programs and services in collaboration with several local organizations. The Ohio State University Extension, The Lorain County General Health District, Lorain City Health Department and Bryant and Stratton Nursing students has hosted health and nutrition programs and services for families and individuals.

We share space with local agencies to offer their services or host demonstrations  for our clients while they are waiting for services from the pantry they can visit the agencies that are set up that day. Some of the agencies that visit are: Assurance, Benefit Bank, Caresource, Genesis House, Lorain County General Health District,  and Salvation Army.
