Are you experiencing challenges and hardship in your life? Does your child need a winter coat? Does Mom need help with paying her power bill? Where can I can go for shelter and a hot meal? Where can I go to seek help?

The answers to these questions and many more can all be found in one location. Sandpoint Community Resource Center can help. Regardless of your problem, we are here to lend a helping hand.

Sandpoint Community Resource Center (SCRC) is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization serving Bonner and Boundary Counties. There is no cost to use SCRC. Our sole mission is very simple – we want to help anyone in need in our communities. By coordinating our local service community, volunteers, and related organizations, we are able provide access to all available help in one location.

Using SCRC to get help is easy. There are three ways. First, just call us at 208-290-1840. Second, we have a walk in location at 231 Church Street Suite 101 that is open 10 – 2 Monday – Friday. Finally, there is an easy to use self help guide on our website (

Our volunteers are friendly, well informed and anxious to help connect those who need some help to those who can provide it. Everyone at SCRC is highly dedicated and diligent in this mission. Our help does not end with a single phone call. We are there to help as long as we are needed and believe that each individual is unique and of great value.

In addition to helping those in need, SCRC hopes inspire the community to embrace volunteerism and become a part of an organization that serves our community. If you or anyone you know is interested in becoming a volunteer please contact us.
