The Julian Center maintains a Food Pantry as an outreach service to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. The program ensures that victims can continue to feed themselves and their children after ending abusive relationships.
Last year, our Food Pantry provided approximately $22,000 worth of food to needy adults and families.
