Help starts here.

You're not alone. We all experience seasons of challenge, difficulty, or sorrow. Whatever your circumstance, Willow offers resources that can help you do life better. 


What type of help do you need?

Practical or physical resources
Visit the Willow Creek Care Center for help with basic needs like food, clothing, transportation, health screenings, job training, ESL, and more. Learn more about how C.A.R.S. provides reliable transportation for those in need—or donate your car to help continue their work.

Relational or spiritual resources
Speak with a Response Pastor for spiritual questions, counselor referrals, help planning a memorial, next steps, or prayer. Explore workshops and resources that help you do life better: RECOVER, RELATE, RESTORE, REBUILD; support groups; Special Friends, and more.

Finding hope in hard seasons

"The hurts piled up so deeply, I thought our marriage could never heal. But in RESTORE, we gained insight into some basic things that were tanking our relationship. Today we have tools. We have hope. We even have fun!"

"Miscarriages happen, right? I told myself I should just get over it. But I just couldn't shake my sadness. In REBUILD, I learned tools for helpful grieving so I could grieve my loss and take steps toward embracing life once again."

"I figured RECOVER was only for those with addictions. But I discovered it's for anyone ready to face whatever barriers hold them back--even if the barrier is how we relate to others. That was me. I'm finding my voice in this safe, authentic community."
