In addition to hands-on support, we are also committed to help others build and grow their spiritual lives through compassion and giving.

Homeless Outreach Ministry
According to a recent report, over half a million people in the USA live on the streets, in cars, in homeless shelters, or in transitional housing. Of that number, 206,286 are people in families, 358,422 are individuals, and 25% of the entire group are children. 15% are considered chronically homeless. 8% are veterans with 1.4 milliion veterans at risk of homelessness. One of the greatest ways we can help make a difference is by reaching out to those in need. And the need is great among our homeless. Our Homeless Outreach Ministry is planning quarterly visits to nearby major metropolitan areas as well as within our own County. In 2016, the team made several visits to New York City. Throughout 2017 the Team will visit homeless groups in Washington, DC, New York City, NY, as well as areas in Schuylkill County.
