Below are links to sites we partner with through the Cooperative Program. Please be sure to visit them to see what God is doing through each of these organizations.
If you are looking for a place to get involved in our community, consider some of these ministries.
Hands of Hope for Life, Inc. is a non-profit ministry that has a genuine concern for sharing the love of Jesus Christ through both actions and words, We are an extension of the body of Christ -- His church. We serve those who are experiencing a pregnancy or who have children under the age of three by meeting their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. We also provide our clients, as well as the community with the truth about prenatal development, abortion and abstinence education. We stand firm in the belief that God has a plan for each of us, regardless of circumstance(s) and we offer HOPE through Jeremiah 29:11.
Yokefellow’s mission is that of a crisis agency which helps overcome the immediate problems of low-income families in a compassionate and caring way. Some of these emergencies may include assistance with rent, house payment, utilities, food, clothing, heating assistance and medicine. Yokefellow helps with the immediate need, but also provides counsel on ways to help people become self-sufficient. The staff refers clients to agencies that can provide education, job training, budget planning, etc. We work closely with other agencies and churches to prevent duplication of services.
Rutherford Housing Partnership Inc is a local non-profit organization which was founded in 1995 by a group of concerned citizens interested in helping low-income, disabled homeowners receive urgent repairs. RHP provides the materials; volunteers provide the labor.
