Our Mission

CHOPIN Hall’s mission is to provide assistance, free of charge, to those in-need who reside in Hancock County. Assistance is provided in basic areas to include food, clothing, household, and personal-care items. CHOPIN Hall is a non-profit organization that serves clients regardless of race, age, or religion.

Providing For Others

CHOPIN Hall is staffed by over 100 loyal community volunteers with part-time administrative help from a director whose salary is funded a grant from The Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation.

  • Each week fresh eggs, cereal and other food items are purchased to provide a complete balanced diet.
