Clara's House Food Pantry

Clara’s House Food Pantry is dedicated to Mother Clara Lee Venson, the wife of the late Apostle Albert Venson. Together, they had a vision to help the less fortunate in the community. In November 2001, T. Tyronne Champion and his wife Felicia saw the need to feed the poor in Fauquier County and the surrounding areas. They renovated an old house on their property and called it Clara’s Faith House Food Pantry.

Since its inception Clara’s Faith House Food Pantry has fed thousands of children and adults. The Food Pantry provides food for the hungry in Fauquier, Culpeper, Orange, Madison and other surrounding counties. The food is purchased and donated from the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. Clara’s Faith House Food Pantry solicits and stores food products donated by supermarkets, wholesalers, USDA food, food processors and local farmers. Donated food is redistributed to the less fortunate through the Food Pantry; nearly half of the food recipients are children. When a child does not eat properly they lose concentration, are less productive and suffer from malnutrition.

Victory Transitional Housing

The Victory Transitional Housing (VTH) is a one year program that offers transitional housing to homeless men, women and children with a broad range of needs. The program helps individuals achieve and sustain a higher quality of life through resources and various training opportunities. The VTH program provides an opportunity for homeless individuals to save money for a future residence, gain information and access to services they need. Individuals meet with assigned financial mentors every week and participate in structured programs where their needs can be met.

The Victory Transitional Program offers specialized services and referrals to individuals based on their needs. Each individual develops goals with his/her assigned mentor and establishes a service plan with each resident. In case of job loss each individual is assisted with identifying and obtaining stable income. Examples of general services and referrals provided by the VTH are as follows:

  • Financial Mentoring
  • Transportation
  • Mental Health Services
  • Substance Abuse Services
  • Food
  • Further Transitional and/or Permanent Housing Options
  • Educational Opportunities
  • Counseling
  • Clothing

The staff at the VTH empower their clients to live a life of self-sufficiency during and after they leave the program. This is accomplished through promoting productive activities, as well as by providing encouragement, education and support. The VTH program collaborates with other agencies in the community to assist the individual in attaining the most effective, beneficial services available.

Noah's Ark Thrift Store

In September 2008, Noah’s Ark Thrift Store was born out of need to help those that lack household furnishings and to allow those that have the means to give a donation for low-cost, quality household items. Noah’s Ark provides a service “to those in need.” Items available include quality furniture, clothes in season, household items and appliances, etc. Newer furniture is donated by housing developers and builders who donate from their model homes after they are sold. All furniture is available to those using vouchers and customers.

Noah’s Ark Thrift Store has couches, loveseats, dressers, microwaves, washer and dryers, small and large TV’s, and dishes. It provides everything you would need for your home. All proceeds from the retail store go towards the mission and vision of Community Touch, Inc.

In order to continue serving our community, Community Touch, Inc. needs slightly used furniture, appliances, misc. household furnishings and clothing. Your gift, either financial or household items, will help provide people with stoves to cook on, couches to sit on and clothes to wear for jobs, school and everyday life.
