Emmaus Center is a faith-based organization that “goes down in the hole” to raise people up out of their life circumstances. It does this through an ongoing relationship with the people they serve. Emmaus Center is a place where the forgotten people of our area can come and share in the life of the community. Through this life in community the people develop a sense of self-worth, and a range of positive relationship skills that assist them in rising out of the life situation they find themselves in and re-enter back into society. We believe that people will rise to a better life when they begin to believe they have something of value to give back by serving others.
