TFO's Mission

“To guide and support unsettled young adults especially those who are aging out of foster care, to become noble individuals through Christ.”

The mission of our agency is to provide physical, spiritual, and transitional support for youth ages 18 to 25 years old, and especially those who have aged out of foster care.The agency includes The Vine Outreach Thrift Store and The Resource Center. The Vine Outreach Thrift Store receives donations of gently used goods and proceeds assist with funding program services for The Resource Center where we provide client services.


The priority of our agency is to ensure unserved and underserved youth ages 18 to 25 years old, as well as others in our community who need assistance with basic human needs to maintain self-sufficiency and stability. We do not turn anyone anyway, especially with the changes reflected in the current economy with rises in unemployment and homelessness. Our agency has had a significant increase in the number of people we provide services for including families and seniors.

Our agency also hosts an open community event for everyone called The Last Saturday of The Month that provides free lunch, free groceries, and free haircuts. Over 4,712 people in our community have been served through our Resource Center since 2011. Of these, 3,127 were served at our Last Saturday of the Month events. More than 50% of those served were families. The Resource Center has provided direct services for 394 clients to date.

Services provided include:

  • Emergency food
  • Free bread and pastries
  • Emergency financial assistance
  • Emergency clothing
  • Help with obtaining social security cards, birth certificates, identification cards, driver’s licenses
  • Applying and reapplying for food stamps/medicaid, assistance with benefit applications
  • Job assistance
  • Bus passes
  • Eligibility applications for free eyeglasses and free cell phones.

The Vine Outreach Thrift Store also provides several types of volunteer work opportunities for the community including our Ministry Relief efforts for Haiti and Africa. We have student volunteers from area high schools and colleges. We also have volunteers from local churches, community groups, and individuals. We provide mentoring and counseling through court approved community service volunteer hours with emphasis on prevention of engaging in any further criminal activity. Community service volunteers have provided over 13,884 volunteer work hours to our agency Ministry Relief and Donations since 2011.
