The Amherst Survival Center is a community center that offers resources to help people meet their basic needs. We currently provide free meals and free groceries. We continue to provide showers, laundry, and lockers for people experiencing homelessness. Our resource center can provide fuel assistance and Salvation Army vouchers, as well as advice about additional services that community members need. A gift today to the Amherst Survival Center will provide healthy food to our neighbors struggling with food insecurity. Every gift counts!
