FISH is a community-based resource for area families in need. It operates a thrift store and also offers assistance for food, clothing, utility bill payments, transportation assistance, and counseling referral services to appropriate agencies. Several other community groups, including the Mokena and Frankfort Lions clubs, Project Share and Berkots Supermarket also provide assistance.
All calls to FISH are handled through Crisis Line of Will County 24 hours a day. In turn, Crisis Line contacts a FISH volunteer who screens the call and directs the client to appropriate care. The FISH organization is always in need of additional volunteers. The hours are flexible and the rewards immeasurable.
