Flat River Outreach Ministries

Who We Are

Flat River Outreach Ministries (FROM) is a nonprofit organization focused on bringing together individuals, families, churches and businesses to respond to the needs of our neighbors in the greater Lowell community. Organized in 1998 by 13 local churches, FROM works alongside families in need to help them improve their quality of life.

What began as a small community food pantry, serving an average of 20 families each month, is now a full-service ministry that provides a number of services including food programs, financial and utility assistance and more to over 300 families every month in the Lowell Area School District.

A big part of FROM is also our Treasures Thrift Shop. The store is run by volunteers and all proceeds support our mission of helping our Lowell neighbors in need. 

What We Do

FROM is a Christian organization helping our neighbors in need by walking alongside, helping them improve their quality of life.

We provide a number of services for our Lowell neighbors including a client choice food pantry, utility and financial assistance, minor home repair and weatherization, taxes, lunch program for school aged children during school breaks and more. 

Our volunteer-run Treasures Thrift Shop plays an important role in our ministry as all proceeds from the store support our mission.
