About Us


Help a Little, Empower a Lot

Supporting the Riverwood community since 1994, STCH serves families and individuals to reduce hunger, combat poverty, and provide a Pathway to Empowerment to improve their lives through services and strategic collaborations. We are a 501c(3) social services agency.

What We Do

Our food pantry serves thousands of meals to hundreds of households, of which 98% are considered extremely low income (less than 30% of median U.S. family income level).

Additional services include:

  • Computer & Internet Access
  • Transportation Assistance
  • Access to Medical Services
  • Legal Aid
  • and More!

STCH’s current facility at 5780 South Peoria Avenue was the result of a 2014 initiative with local funders that resulted in an 8,000 square foot facility that has broadened STCH’s ability to serve needs in the community.

Our Story

The story of STCH is also the story of Riverwood. A multi-unit housing boom began in the 1970’s, then by the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, many of the apartment complexes changed from local to out-of-state ownership.
