Serve Moses Lake Clearinghouse

Serve Moses Lake receives calls from potential clients for a variety of assistance needs; financial, clothing, food, furniture, housing, non-food pantry items, and homeless outreach, etc. We are an advocacy to provide agency referrals, prayer support and encouragement. Currently we only provide services to Moses Lake residents. All our funds are provided by local churches and other community donors. In most cases clients must schedule an intake appointment.

  • We verify the circumstances and needs of our clients.
  • We attempt to provide a comprehensive plan of action.
  • We make referrals to other crucial local agencies and resources.
  • Financial help comes from local churches, not our office.
  • Material help comes from the local community.

Care Sack Lunches

Serve Moses Lake partners with a team of volunteers in Moses Lake who put lunches together weekly to feed the homeless community. If you would like to help or want information, check the CARE website at
