Fish & Loaves is committed to ensuring food security for our local communities, but the needs of the families and individuals served by the pantry are often broader than food.
To help families and individuals assess and address wider needs, Fish & Loaves has partnered with the Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency to provide an on-site caseworker.
The caseworker is on-site at Fish & Loaves on Mondays between 9am-12pm & 1-4pm for resource information and referrals. Caseworker services are optional for Fish & Loaves clients and provide helpful referrals as well as assistance with rent, mortgage and utility payments.
To setup an appointment to meet with the Case Worker, please call Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency at 313-388-9799.
