Local Partners


ACES is Rhinelander's Association of Churches for Emergency Support. It is the gathering of Rhinelander churches to show the love of Christ in tangible ways to those in need.

The purpose of the Association of Churches for Emergency Support (ACES) is to coordinate emergency aid, utilize a pool of funds, draw a connection been the Rhinelander areas churches and public service agencies, and to divide the administrative tasks that come with providing such aid. In essence, our goal is to see emergency aid delivered to people, who are in need, in the most efficient, effective and Christ-like manner.

Limited resources are available for family needs of shelter, health, food and clothing by calling (715) 360-5826. A volunteer will call back within two business days.

Rhinelander area food pantry

Opened in 2005, RAFP is a non-denominational, tax exempt 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. For nine years they were located within the Nativity of Our Lord Thrift Shop at 436 N. Brown Street. In 2014, RAFP was able to purchase, modify, and move to the former Golden Harvest Market at 627 Coon Street. They are one block south of Lincoln Street, next to The Little Red Car Wash.

The RAFP relies almost exclusively on volunteers. The Pantry Coordinator and Associate Executive Director are both part-time positions and the only paid employees at the Pantry. Last year over 440 volunteers donated time and energy toward the success of the pantry.
