Jonnycake’s mission is to provide basic needs, resources, and hope to our community members. Our vision is a community without hunger and poverty where everyone can reach their full potential and improve their quality of life. Our values are described below.

Respect and Dignity

We treat those seeking our assistance with respect and dignity.  We believe in self-determination and appreciate the resilience that our community members demonstrate in tackling life’s challenges.

Outstanding Service

We provide timely and reliable service in an environment where people feel heard, respected, and supported.  We are committed to hiring staff and placing volunteers who are talented, compassionate, and uphold our values and vision.


We welcome and embrace diversity among our members, volunteers, staff and decision-makers.  We continually work to be a culturally competent and inclusive organization.

Community and Collaboration

We believe our community has a shared responsibility for ensuring that our neighbors can meet their basic needs.  We believe we can accomplish more when we work collaboratively with community members and partners to achieve shared goals.

We are proud to share a snapshot of the services we provided in 2021.   Thanks to the generous support of our community, last year the Center continued to expand services to our neighbors in need. 

We could not provide help to so many of our community members without your support. Thank you.
