|A Day in the Life of the
Amherst Survival Center
Support one entire day of services at the Amherst Survival Center located at 1200 North Pleasant Street in North Amherst. Touch the lives of approximately 130 of our neighbors in need. Services include: hot lunch prepared on the premises by our volunteers; fresh vegetables, fruit and bread; Food Pantry including staples plus fresh meat, milk, cheese; clothes and household items from the Free Store; shower and laundry facilities; critical social services and Free Medical Clinic. In addition, the Center offers the warm welcome of community.
“The Amherst Survival Center has been a very special place for me. I have found it to be an invaluable resource…for seeking professional and personal advice in my attempt to move up and out of hard times. I have received medical care while I have not had medical insurance, and support in trying to find a job. I am inspired by folks I have met here, both patrons and staff, and am reminded every time I enter of how blessed this community is to have such a charitable resource.”
