Coyote Hill

Coyote Hill Christian Children’s Home exists to provide a professional, yet traditional home environment
 for abused and neglected children. First Presbyterian supports Coyote Hill through monetary donations and through volunteerism.

Room at the Inn

In years past, First Presbyterian has been one of many local congregations to host Room at the Inn (a moving homeless shelter).  This year the Unitarian Universalist Church is hosting RATI for the duration of the winter because of COVID-19. Check out RATI's Facebook page for the latest updates and opportunities to donate and/or volunteer.

See photo at left for donations to Room At The Inn - Thanks!


Partners in Education

First Presbyterian is a Partner in Education with Benton Elementary.  We love to support the teachers, staff, children, and families at Benton!

Currently, we are collecting books for the classrooms, see the link below for a book list.

We provide a hot, free, and delicious meal on Saturdays from January through March for anyone in the community who needs a bite to eat. Because of COVID-19, we won't be serving at 16 Hitt Street, but we are soliciting donations for service elsewhere. To sign up, click here.
