About Monument Crisis Center

In 2003, a small group of concerned citizens banded together and founded the Monument Crisis Center. Enthusiastic students from Mt. Diablo JROTC and Carondelet High School were our first volunteers helping with everything from client intake to donation solicitations. With start-up funding from the Safeway Foundation, Salvation Army, Soroptimist International of Pleasant Hill as well as several individual donors the Monument Crisis Center opened its doors on August 19, 2003. They worked out of one single office and food “closet” and served 84 families on the first day of food distribution.  From  that  day  forward,  our  client  base  has only continued to grow,adding approximately 1,300 new families each year. Today, we have more than 15,000 households signed up in our Food Distribution Program and we serve between 80-120 families at each distribution. Our programs and services have evolved and expanded in order to meet the needs of our growing clientele. Although food distribution remains our primary objective, we have developed adult education, youth, and senior programs to address the various needs of our clients. Monument Crisis Center strives to be a valuable resource for those in need of support in our community.

Monument Crisis Center reviews


Briefly volunteered at the Monument Crisis Center and deeply admired the hard working team there. Their vibe and environment is so passionate, fast-paced, hard-working, and a pleasure to be around. It reminds you and refreshes you to see people making a difference in the world.

Volunteer (receptionist / data entry)

It's the only and most excitied volunteer work experience that I ever had! At the counter, I can always greet to the needy people politely. Enter their information, asked them their needs and referred them to the appropriate agencies such as Food Bank or Crisis Help. I have learned how to react with people who need help. Furthermore, I gained the knowledge of being a volunteer or community worker. We have to be passionate on the clients and put a lot of efforts and love to them in order to help them overcome their crises and obstacles.

I myself helped out at the old location on Monument Blvd, and they were delightful and caring to the community and helped those families and individuals in need of services especially towards youth coming from low income families, way to go and god-bless all the workers there. Hope everyone at the new location at MCC have a wonderful new year and hope that your organization can help those families who don't have transportation to pick up food have volunteers who can deliver food to those individuals, thanks once again and god- bless.

I volunteered here recently as part of work based, "give back to the community" day. They are a well organized group with dedicated and regular volunteers and they do good and care for the community they service. I will volunteer here again and encourage my family to volunteer here as well :)
