St. Anne’s hosts several outreach ministries:

Resource Hour

Resource hour meets on the 1st & 3rd Wednesdays of each month from 3-4pm downstairs in the Parish Hall,Council for the Homeless logo and we invite various agencies to attend and present what they can do to help those with needs:

Columbia River Mobile Health (CRMH), Council for the Homeless, Lifeline, and Recovery Café. They provide many services for those with needs. CRMH help guests get medical insurance, provide counseling, and help guests get phones. Council for the Homeless help our guests get registered in the system and help with their follow-ups to get them into housing. Lifeline brings snacks and offer counseling. Recovery Café provides counseling for those with addiction issues.  The Resouce Guide from the Council for the Homeless is very valuable. Through the resources that we provide one of our long time Safe Stay guests found housing, one of our new guests was able to get health insurance, one of our guests was able to get their teeth fixed. Many of our guests continue following up with both CRMH and Council for the homeless on a regular basis to help them on to the next phase of their journeys.  SeaMar comes to Resource hour and can provide transportation, offer medical and dental services, help with housing, and increase access for people on SSI and SSDI. Please contact our deacon, The Rev. Sheryl Haase, with any questions.

Food Pantryfood pantry

Little Library & Pantry – This little kiosk sits by the sidewalk and is stocked with food for the mind, soul, and body. Members of the community help us keep it full. Here’s a list of our most needed items. Please pick up  some extra food items on your next shopping trip and donate them to the food pantry.        

Laundry Love Project

This program helps people in need wash their clothes. This is an ongoing community-wide program that St. Anne’s supports. Bring your quarters, dollars, or checks (made out to Camas Friends Church, note in memo line: Laundry Love) and put in the jar at the back of the church.  Friends Church gives cards to those needing to wash their clothes which they redeem for quarters at the laundromat.  Friends Church then reimburses the laundromat.  You can read about it at: https://www.camasfriends.org/laundry-love.
