As of July 2023, Bidwell Riverside Center and Hawthorn Hill officially merged into Families Forward, an organization where the original four programs - Bidwell Pantry, Child Development Center, New Directions Shelter, and The Home Connection - work together to provide compassionate, life-changing assistance to families and their path to self-sufficiency.
How we help the community
"The food and clothing pantry has really helped to supplement our expenses. The volunteers and employees are very friendly and helpful."
Debra, Bidwell Pantry Client
