We collaborate with non-profits, ministries, and businesses around Cleveland to befriend and empower powerless and victimized people.
Alongside Building Hope in the City and US Together, we connect church members with families that have recently relocated to Cleveland from their home countries or refugee camps. Mentors help families acclimate to life in the United States and provide them access to an American friend who can be an ongoing resource for them to thrive in their new home.
There are currently needs for family and teen mentoring. Commitments range from one-time assistance to weekly meetings. Do you want to help but feel under-resourced? We provide initial training, translation at your first meeting and support and coaching along the way.
Safe Families finds short-term homes for children of families in need. These children would otherwise be in danger of going into state custody. Parents are then able to create a safe and profitable environment for the family and the eventual return of their children. We love supporting families in Cleveland and seeing our church in general and Community Groups in particular rally in support around host families.
Alternaterm is an organization that helps women in crisis pregnancies. Women that lack support through family members, friends or a local church often struggle with the news of being pregnant. Alternaterm seeks to provide biblical counseling to these women in hopes they choose life for their child, have an abundance of resources to assist with parenting (or adoption) and ultimately find life in Christ.
We collaborate with people planting churches around the world. We work with those who are indigenous to their context and seek to partner on their terms, deferring to what each partner says is most helpful to their efforts.
