History of FaithWorks’ Ministry
FaithWorks has been addressing healthcare and poverty-related needs in Southeast Georgia (primarily Glynn County, but some services are provided in surrounding counties) since 1997 when FaithWorks partnered with the Southeast Georgia Health System to direct its Pastoral Care Program. A number of ministries have emerged over the years as connections have been made with persons in need, churches, service providers, and organizations that provide resources. These ministries include The Sparrows Nest (a clearing house for local churches that provides food and financial assistance), The Cancer Network of Hope (a service to persons getting cancer treatment who have little or no social structure), The Samaria Initiative (which connects those who live outside impoverished areas with those who live in poverty), The Well (a daytime hospitality and resource center for persons experiencing homelessness).
