We are committed to seeking the good of the city we live in through a variety of local urban community projects. We are engaged in supporting the following:
Our church participates in a ministry called Safe Families for Children, an alternative to foster care, that reaches out to children and their parents in our community who are in crisis due to situations like homelessness, domestic violence, job loss or illness. Through the involvement and resources of the local church, both human and financial, Safe Families enables families to remain intact and to thrive, even in times of crisis and difficulty.
There are many ways to be involved in this ministry. If you have an interest in coming alongside families in crisis, reaching out to at-risk youth and kids, or participating in the type of biblical hospitality that opens your home to the suffering, please contact Laura Galt. You can also visit the website at newyorkcity.safe-families.org to learn more about the three key volunteer roles.
