Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide long term and temporary assistance to those who have fallen on difficult times in hopes of returning them to the independent pursuit of their life’s goals.

Serving Your Community

Active Faith Community Services helps people in need who reside primarily in the South Lyon Community School District. This 83 square mile area covers six different municipalities including parts of Oakland, Livingston and Washtenaw Counties.

We had over 3,500 food pantry visits in 2021!  On average we service over 400 individuals per month. Over 100 children received backpacks and school supplies. Warm winter coats were provided to over 100 families.  We also provide toilet paper, cleaning products and hygiene products.

Active Faith Map

Active Faith is continually changing to meet the needs of the community. We are an information and referral center for food, clothing, and utility assistance from other agencies. Contact us and we can direct you to the right agencies even though you may not fit into our financial guidelines.
