our community impact

We are about relationships. Between our staff and those who come to us for a helping hand, some guidance, some encouragement. Among our programs, our volunteers and the places where they come, whether churches, businesses, civic organizations or neighborhoods. Among our supporters who look to us for tangible and intangible results. Between our past, our present and our future. We nurture relationships that focus on fighting hunger, helping seniors, empowering urban American Indians, nurturing families and mentoring youth.  Since 1905, GMCC has been a family of programs where compassion has inspired action. Our dedication to that continues.
