For over 100 years Maywood Mission has provided assistance to individuals, couples, and families in the Lancaster and greater Fairfield county communities. Our services include a daily emergency food pantry, a thrift store offering low-cost goods, an affordable daycare center with an emphasis on excellence, a financial assistance program, pastoral and spiritual care, and seasonal offerings like a Christmas gift giveaway and children's summer camp.


Through each act of service, we seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus as modeled by his humble example. Our desire is to be a beacon of hope in our community, even on someone's most difficult day.
