Our mission is to help our struggling neighbors within the Saline Area School District by providing them the extra aid, tools and resources to help improve their lives.
Since we’re a non-profit organization, we heavily rely on the help of our community for our success. Thankfully, the support and donations we’ve received during the past 54 years have enabled us to provide the needed, ongoing assistance for up to 350 individuals who need our help on a weekly basis.
In just the last year alone, we were able to provide over $150,000 in food and paper product donations to the families we serve. We’re also a great resource in helping our clients connect with a variety of different resources beyond our agency. Whether our clients’ needs are financial, physical, emotional or require information, we’re here to help.
We’ve come a long way since 1961 when Marian Hering first established Saline Area Social Service in her basement to provide Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets to those in need in the Saline Community!
