The Matchan Nutrition Center attempts to provide more than hot, nutritious meals. Our mission focuses on helping our clientele achieve self-sufficiency and economic self-reliance as well. To accomplish these goals, we partner with a variety of Governmental
Units, Community Agencies and Local Organizations.
Some of these partnerships include the following:
- A Legal Assistance Program in cooperation with Christian Legal Aid Society, to provide help to our clients.
- Medical, Social & Community Partnerships such as the Greater Pontiac Community Coalition’s annual “Healthy Affairs” event providing Family Medical Screening as well as on-site blood pressure testing and select health screening service.
- Employment leads and career training referrals in cooperation with Michigan Works’ Job Link Program, the Michigan Department of Rehabilitation Services and other vocational services.
- Being a USDA Food Distribution Site distributing food on a quarterly basis as part of the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) in the City of Pontiac.
Matchan collaborates with many other Government and
Social Agencies. Click here for examples.
