About Us

What do we do?

The Olive Tree was created to reconnect isolated people and families to communities of support by providing services in the areas of homelessness, hunger relief and education. 

We offer food-focused support services including food hampers, free community meals, seniors luncheons and more!  We offer programming dedicated to addressing isolation and provide a wide range of outreach services. We are passionate about making a difference in the lives of children, single parents, and seniors. We wouldn’t be able to serve our community without the incredible support of our donors.

By extending a helping hand, we not only enrich the lives of those we serve but also find a profound sense of purpose and fulfillment for ourselves. In the act of service, we discover the incredible power of empathy and the joy that arises from knowing that we've made a positive impact on someone else's journey. We get to serve, and, not just as an obligation, but as an opportunity to connect, uplift, and contribute to the greater good of our shared human experience. It's in these moments of selflessness that we unlock the true potential of our humanity and leave a legacy of kindness and compassion for generations to come. 

Your belief in our cause inspires us every day to work harder and reach more people. We are deeply thankful for your trust in us.
