About CES

Welcome to CES

sm Carl Este storySince its origin, Community Emergency Service (CES) has provided high-quality direct service to people in need. Through direct aid relief, advocacy, referral, guidance and prayer support, if desired, CES seeks to strengthen families and individuals. The goal of CES is to move them beyond crisis to financial stability, as well as emotional health, personal growth and spiritual depth.

The last few years also have seen:

  • strengthened investment by congregations, foundations, businesses and individuals
  • increased capacity for offering fresh and frozen foods with our walk-in refrigerator/freezer
  • improved services for the Food Shelf, Home Delivery and East African Distribution
  • doubled support to homebound seniors through Meals on Wheels and Home Delivery
  • developed a Commissary for Meals on Wheels (MOW) along with Metro MOW and several other MOW programs
  • established a new program, Ani-Meals, a pet food supplement program primarily for the homebound
  • continued the normal ongoing services of care
