Mission: Code Purple Kent County is on a mission to help people stay out of the cold during winter months when they are experiencing homelessness. We go beyond this effort with "Code In Need" which helps with providing a weekly open clothing pantry, food pantry and human services needs. We provide the basic or extensive needs so that people who are experiencing a crisis, emergency or other life experience that causes homelessness are able to live a peaceful life without angst. We do this by providing group homes, parsonages, temporary hotel stays, temporary tent supplies and areas as well as human services and food during most of these "helpful stays."
