Here we honor each person as an Individual.
CREATE, Inc. is a multi-service organization which provides social services and support to persons of all ages in need.

The mission of CREATE is to promote the physical, psychological, social and spiritual well-being of the community we serve through the provision of sensitive, caring community-based services that empower the individual. We do this by providing health resources, social services, education, employment and housing services.

Many of our members are homeless and suffer from chemical dependency and their lives have suffered as a result. We treat the whole person and offer a caring and accepting environment where these individuals may rebuild their lives.

For this purpose we have several medical and residential programs which provide the basic, human needs and the springboard from which healing begins.

CREATE, Inc. was founded in 1973 by Fr. Benedict M. Taylor, O.F.M., a Franciscan Friar of Holy Name Province

One of our greatest friends and helpers for many years was Father Mychal Judge, a Franciscan Friar who was killed on September 11th, 2001 at the World Trade Center. We continue to remember him and hope to honor his memory with our work.

We're growing! Please review the pages within this website to learn how we are expanding to help the community and how you can help us!
