About Our Organization

How It All Began…

Founded in 1989 by Jimmy & Phyllis Rotonno serving approximately 40-60 sandwich bags to the homeless per day (plus taking food to the local shut-ins).

Through thick and thin Jimmy’s soup kitchen remained open thanks to the generous help of volunteers and philanthropic people and business. 


Where We Are Today…

Our Father’s House Soup Kitchen‘ AKA ‘Our Father’s House Family Services’ has grown to a full service Ministry under the care of Katie Crissy as CEO & Program Director.

A hot four course meal, plus a bag meal to go is served to 160-200 of the less fortunate daily, every week of the year.

The kitchen has a dining room, a clothing boutique (providing jeans. sneakers/shoes, T-shirts and other clothing items to the less fortunate). It also offers personal hygiene products and recycled bike transportation to the less fortunate along with a volunteer barber.
