Welcome to the SCAC!
The Springboro Community Assistance Center (SCAC) was created in 2007 to assist families in need of food and other services.
Families who need assistance are able to utilize the center as the need arises. The goal of the SCAC is self sufficiency and improved quality of life for all family members.
When the SCAC opened, approximately 12 families were being helped each week with food, clothing and school supplies. We are now serving over 40 families.
Most of the families who are helped are working hard to overcome the challenges of layoffs, single parenthood, or insufficient wages to support the family. All of these issues directly impact the children and their ability to thrive at school and within the community.
We are currently serving 101 children who receive free/reduced lunches with food on the weekends. We fill the bags during the week and then on Friday the bags are distributed in the schools for the children to receive. The bags are then picked up on Monday for them to be filled back up again. We are currently partnering with Springboro Baptist Church for the 101 children. The children are identified by the schools by need and being on free/reduced lunch.
