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