Social Concerns helps families in need of assistance such as food, rent, utility bills, medication, gas, and more. It has a large Food Pantry which is stocked from Ascension’s First Sunday of the Month Food Drive and other sources. Each year our volunteers help about 20,000 people and give out about $400,000 in assistance, mostly coming from Ascension Thrift Store. Social Concerns also receives financial support from private donations and wills. It is located at 1238 Aurora Road, Melbourne, FL 32935 (next to the Thrift Store) and is open Monday to Friday, 9:00am-11:00am.
