Brighton Center

Christ Church has a long history of working with Brighton Center Inc., a non-profit agency based in Newport.  Brighton Center’s mission is to help families become self-sufficient through support services, education and leadership programs. It typically serves more than 60,000 people per year.

 Christ Church regularly adopts  the Brighton Center food pantry. Our members are asked to bring in non-perishable food items such as peanut butter, canned fruit and vegetables, tuna and spaghetti sauce, which are collected in the front lobby of the church during a given month and then delivered to the center.

Christ Church also puts up a Jesse Tree each year in December.  The Jesse Tree has tags on it with names of children and their wishes for Christmas.  Members choose an item and bring it back to the church by a designated date.  The gifts are then dropped off at the agency and distributed to the families.  We typically help over 100 children each year this way.

Christ Church is part of the Community Connections group, made up of churches in Fort Thomas that give to a financial assistance fund at Brighton Center. Families must meet with a worker in the center’s emergency assistance program to determine their need and get other resources to help them reach self-sufficiency.
