Each year, the NACC selects a nonprofit agency near our conference location to receive a special donation from conference participants and the greater NACC membership.
This year, the local agency selected is the Response to Love Center.
Mission Statement: Inspired by our faith and inclusive of all, Response to Love Center improves lives across our community by addressing basic human needs and providing a pathway to self-sufficiency.
Our Story: When St. Adalbert’s parish school was closed in 1985, the community was gripped with grief, frustration, and a deep fear for the future. In their anxiety, many people sought an answer through prayer. It became abundantly clear that the choices were not ours; He was giving us direction! We responded. Twenty-four hours after the school closing in 1985, the Response to Love Center was born. The focus of the Center is the holistic treatment of poverty: loving care of the economically deprived, the spiritually poor, the emotionally battered, the isolated, the wounded, and the broken.
What We Do: We show people the path to self-sufficiency by providing them with various compassionate programs. The transformed building is an outreach center for the community, a center of love and acceptance for all who enter.
At the Center:
- The dining room feeds the hungry
- The chapel provides spiritual warmth
- The food pantry stretches our families’ thin budgets
Through prayer, silence, and listening, God directs us. We step out in faith and respond with a compassionate presence and accompaniment.
