Family Services

Family Services focuses on a range of programs and special efforts for local families and individuals. From its Choice Food Pantry, to counseling, to health services and more, the agency meets neighbors’ needs and helps them on the road to sustainability. 

CRC Family Services and Choice Food Pantry

CRC's Family Services Program serves Clintonville and surrounding communities through a Choice Food Pantry, weekly produce distributions, sack lunches, and other assistance. 

Thanks to grants from The Columbus Foundation/Osteopathic Heritage Foundation, Medical Mutual of Ohio, individual donors, and the work of students at The Ohio State University Department of Design and College of Education and Human Ecology (Dietetics), CRC completed renovations at our 14 W. Lakeview Family Services Building in 2017.
