Care for the People of Clintonville

The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life. - Jane Addams

In times of adversity it’s important to know that someone cares. At the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center (CRC), we help those in need in our community.

Through the generous support of our caring citizens and businesses we provide assistance through our food pantry, child and youth programs, senior services, and kinship care program. Whether it’s a helping hand during hard times, or helping people get the support they need through referrals to other services in our network, the CRC keeps our community strong by ensuring that all individuals and families become self-sufficient.

You can help us in this important work.
