RURAL MOBILE OUTREACH
DISTRIBUTING FOOD TO THOSE LIVING IN RURAL AREAS IN OUR FIVE-COUNTY SERVICE AREA
Our Rural Mobile Outreach program provides basic necessities to those in rural areas who are struggling. Most often, these are children and the elderly. Without reliable transportation to visit us for assistance, these individuals and families would have no way to get the help they need. Instead, we bring support directly to them, providing food, toiletries, school supplies and more to keep them on their feet.
The Mobile Outreach Clinic has partnered with Catholic Charities of Gainesville to further extend it's mission and outreach to other communities including Micanopy and Hawthorne through the Rural Mobile Outreach Program. They will be serving these areas on a rotating basis every Tuesday of the month. Please contact them at (352)273-5329 for more information or to schedule an appointment! See News for schedule details

A STORY OF GRATITUDE: SHARON*
“I am so grateful for the Catholic Charities Rural Mobile Outreach van that comes twice a month to our town. We have a lot of needy people in dire need of help whether it is food, water or personal care items, as it is too far for some of us to make it to Chiefland. The help is dearly needed here since we have contaminated water in our water system. The people here, mostly families, live in campsites and trailers. We appreciate any help and resources we can get. I too need service and am grateful for the van to assist in bringing food and water twice a month along with personal care items, clothes and other various things. Thanks, and be Blessed and Encouraged.”
