The Mission of the Humane Society of Aurora is to work in partnership with Aurora Animal Control and Care to increase adoptions and rescues, improve shelter conditions, and to educate and assist the community in responsible pet ownership.
The Mission of Mutual Ground is to provide education, awareness, and life-changing services that empower individuals, families and communities to end the cycle of domestic and sexual violence.
The Kendall County Community Food Pantry (KCCFP) helps under-served and in-need households in the community. The Pantry purchases or rescues nutritious and diet-balancing foods (meat, dairy, fruits, vegetables, grains, cereals), basic toiletries, soap, disinfectants, adult and children’s clothing, shoes, and boots, and other items to help with basics human needs. These items are distributed to residents of highest health risk and greatest financial need (homeless, near and below the Federal Poverty Level, and emergency situations). In addition to utilizing the Northern Illinois Food Bank (NIFB) to purchase significantly lower cost foods, the Pantry also operates a 6-day-per-week Food Recovery Program in cooperation with several local grocery stores and restaurants. These two excellent programs enable the Pantry to deliver more than $8 of food for every $1 donated. The “Red Door Room”, open to the public 24 x 7 x 365, allows the community to become involved directly in donations. Hundreds of local businesses and families regularly donate many different items, dropping them off in the room for later gathering by Pantry personnel. Finally, because all aspects of the Pantry are managed and staffed by volunteers, more of the donated funds reach clients in need.
