“Neighbor Helping Neighbor”
Eastern Henrico FISH Inc. (FISH) has served local residents encountering financial difficulties with emergency rent, mortgage and utility assistance since 1972. It is a 501(c)3 organization founded by local churches to centralize the delivery of emergency assistance to families residing in the eastern portion of Henrico County.
FISH’s Mission: To centralize the delivery of emergency services by providing financial assistance, food, clothing, information, and referral to residents of eastern Henrico County thereby reducing an immediate threat of homelessness.
Carlisle Avenue Baptist Church supports this ministry partner by giving the benevolent funds collected at the exit doors of the sanctuary every 1st Sunday, by collecting items monthly to stock the food and clothes closets and participating in the monthly fund-raisers. In September, we hosted the Rock’ N’ Roll Diner and Dance in our gym that netted over $1,000. Maristela Araujo is our representative on the FISH Board of Directors. Additional volunteers are needed. FISH operations are housed at the Village Presbyterian Church on Laburnum Avenue. New clients are asked to call (804) 257-7730.
