Our mission to provide a helping hand to persons and families in need guides and informs our work in the community.  

The Family Center carries out its mission through three programs staffed by volunteers:

  2. The Food Shelf provides Chester and Andover residents with supplemental food including non-perishable staples, “fresh” produce, meat and dairy.
  3. The Thrift Shop provides affordable clothing and household goods to the public. Proceeds from Thrift Shop sales support our Financial Assistance and Food Shelf Programs.
