whomgivemercyimageOn October 14th, the Williamsburg House of Mercy began satellite operations at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church.  We are available at this location on the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.  The Williamsburg House of Mercy satellite operation will be available to meet with those in need of emergency utility and rent assistance, and will be providing referrals to our main office for rapid rehousing and other assistance.  You may also call our main office at 757-253-0664, and they can always point you in the right direction!

In addition, our Mobile Food Pantry is also expanding to include the upper James City County area.  Currently, our Mobile Food Pantry is held at Williamsburg House of Mercy on the first Friday of every month.  This food distribution serves more than 200 families each month.  Beginning November 7th, we will be holding an additional monthly food distribution for 100 pre-registered families at Stonehouse Presbyterian. This food distribution will take place monthly on the Monday that follows the first Friday of the month (November 7th, December 5th, January 9th, February 6th…).  Clients may sign up for the upper county Mobile Food Pantry in advance at St. Olaf Catholic Church, Stonehouse Presbyterian, or the Williamsburg House of Mercy office.
