York Community Resource Center - Outreach
A multi-purpose neighborhood resource center serving the residents of Villa Park
York Community Resource Center provides community services to assist with the physical, social, and spiritual needs of local families. Services include after-school and summer programs for elementary and middle schoolers providing homework assistance, emotional learning, and recreation, as well as life skills training. Case management services assist families with setting and overcoming economic, emotional, and other challenges they may face.
ECRC volunteers staff a biblically-based God Time weekly at the Center. We support their efforts via the Jubilee Furniture store with volunteers and donations.
Yorkfield Food Pantry
The Elmhurst-Yorkfield Food Pantry (EYFP) originated in a small walk-in closet within the Yorkfield Presbyterian Church. Over the course of four decades, EYFP has grown to serve 750 families each month, operating out of a 2,500-square-foot facility. These families come from Elmhurst, Lombard, Villa Park, and nearby communities, encompassing a diverse range of individuals, including the unemployed and underemployed, single parents, seniors with fixed incomes, and those with disabilities. EYFP remains steadfast in its mission to provide food, compassion, and hope to our neighbors in need.
Elmhurst CRC collects food for Elmhurst-Yorkfield Food Pantry (EYFP) on an ongoing basis for local in-need residents. Non-perishable food may be dropped off at the cabinet located near the nursery on the west side.
We love. We Care. We'll be there.
“I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me,
I was in prison and you came to visit me.” Matthew 25:36
ECRC’s Prison Ministry brings grace, mercy, intentional hope, and support to men, women, and children who are incarcerated as we minister to them in local and out-of-state prisons.
Our goal is to let them know that “we love, we care, and we’ll be there” for them as we show them Christ’s love and help them develop a closer relationship with Him.
Our hope is that these individuals become followers of Christ and then show His love to others both in prison and after their release. We minister to the men and women inside prison with on-site visits and trauma healing. We show love with care packages and needed resources.
