Who We are
FaithWorks encourages people to live out their faith with action. We might be holding a hand while someone is dying, praying before someone goes into surgery, or listening to someone in crisis. We might be picking up a piece of litter, hammering a nail, or painting a wall. We might be planting a seed, mentoring a child, or driving someone to the doctor. FaithWorks can be different things to different people…an opportunity...an angel in a time of need…a resource. We offer hope, encouragement, love and support.
FaithWorks lifts our community through
- providing food for the hungry
- providing a day resource and hospitality center for people who are homeless
- getting help for people through social services
- providing support and encouragement for cancer patients
- providing financial assistance for those hurt by disaster
- helping those who are homeless develop skills to become employed
- organizing transportation for medical services
- providing counseling and guidance through pastoral care services and a host of other acts of service
