Quincy Crisis Center (QCC) is a program of the Esther R. Sanger Center for Compassion. The mission of the Sanger Center is "to advance a culture of compassion."
QCC serves people in time of crisis assisting them through their present turmoil and return to independent living. QCC conducts a number of programs aimed at people at risk across the South Shore - the Quincy Crisis Hotline provides crisis counseling, information and referrals; the Food for Families “food pantry-on-wheels,” and the Faith Covenant Meal provide emergency food assistance to the homebound and the homeless.
The Sanger Center for Compassion is a Christian faith-based outreach agency whose primary mission is to serve the needs of marginalized and forgotten people while promoting social justice, biblical compassion, and solidarity with the hungry, the hurting and the homeless poor. We seek to offer support while maintaining human dignity in time of profound crisis, and offering hope at the point of despair. Our programs grow out of a commitment to respond to the needs of the whole person -- body, mind and spirit, and are designed to respond to unmet needs in partnership with existing agencies.
By design, we depend on volunteers whom we equip, empower and enable to provide resources and relationships to those in need, linking them as neighbor to neighbor. For more info - call 617-847-6967 or email AdvanceCompassion@SangerCenter.org
