We have a wonderful history dating back to our beginning in 1916. You can view the 100-year history page here. In September 2023, we transitioned from a church ministry to a Sacramento community outreach organization. In February 2024, we officially incorporated as Capital Compassion and are led by Pastor Rick Cole. We look forward to the future as we take up that mantle and carry it forward to fulfill our kingdom impact.
- Volunteering at Community Events
- Homeless Initiatives
- Refugee Assistance
- Food and Hunger Aid
- CARE (providing jobs for those with special needs and disabilities).
We serve the unhoused community on the third Saturday of every month by distributing 150 bags of snacks, toiletries, and a fresh lunch. Pastor Rick will be working with city leaders in 2024 to come up with solutions to helping people find housing and wholeness. Read about Pastor Rick’s time living on the streets in his Incarnate Book.
At our Warehouse location we serve individuals and families every day with groceries and supplies. Our Compassion team of volunteers and our CARE program help pack food bags for the housed and unhoused each week. We average about 150 walk-ins each month.
Our Compassion volunteers rise to the occasion to serve at community events like the Rosemont Park celebration, a midtown event called “Hops and Hounds,” and several grocery giveaways while partnered with the Gateway Charter Schools group.
Our Compassion team works with local partners like World Relief to help set up apartments, donate essential goods, assist refugees with food provision and help them navigate social services.
