The Food Pantry began in 1999 and has approximately 50+ volunteers. In 2011 there were 3,386 food boxes totaling 100,450 lbs given to 12,260 family members in south Colorado Springs. The Connections4Life Food Pantry provides the most basic need of feeding the hungry. Life Skills classes are then provided to help overcome the issues that brought them here. From the moment a family walks through the door, we are truly blessed to be able to help. We celebrate with them as they achieve their goals and climb above their circumstances. The Food Pantry distributes food every Thursday from 5:30pm until 7:30pm.

We focus on the individual
The difference begins with the initial intake process which has been refined for 12 years. The 4A’s; Assessment, Advocacy, Assignment and Adoption process is where we structure a simple and easy plan for the client to follow. We refine the focus of the plan as the individual responds with an ultimate outcome that guarantees success.
This is an extremely important skill that our young people and those in the military who are finishing their tours need to learn. We are accumulating a donated wardrobe of business dress outfits that the job searcher can borrow to improve their image during the interview.
