Seerving Christ in the Community
They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on them. He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water.
Lending a Hand Throughout the Chattahoochee River Valley
Did you know that right here in Columbus, GA, one in five people grapples with life below the poverty line? It's a sobering reality, but one that Valley Rescue Mission is dedicated to addressing. At the heart of our mission is the Family Services ministry, situated on our main campus at 2903 Second Avenue, ready to provide support and hope to those in need.
An Essential Lifeline
Imagine losing your job, facing a medical emergency, or being hit by one of life's unpredictable storms. It's these challenges that can send families spiraling into homelessness. The Family Services ministry steps in precisely when it's needed most.
A Bounty of Support
Our Family Services ministry is a lifeline for those facing hardship. We offer an array of assistance:
Food: Hunger is a harsh reality for many. We respond to this need with food assistance, requiring a referral from the Department of Family & Children’s Services (DFCS) and a valid photo ID.
Clothing: In the face of adversity, having suitable clothing can make a world of difference.
Household Goods: We help families set up their living spaces with essential household goods and furniture.
Utility Assistance: Limited utility assistance is available for clients experiencing financial challenges.
Adapting to the Seasons
Beyond the essentials, our commitment to the community shines through in every season. When summer's scorching heat bears down, generous donors provide electric fans, a literal lifeline for those who lack air conditioning. These fans are a godsend for folks looking to "beat the heat.”
As winter approaches and the cold sets in, heaters are donated and distributed. They offer a welcome reprieve from the biting cold, ensuring that families stay warm and safe.
A Message of Hope
But perhaps the most vital support we offer isn't material—it's a message of hope. Our Family Services coordinator takes the time to pray with each client, offering a listening ear and a path to solace. Many find comfort in sharing their struggles, knowing they're not alone. We believe in connecting individuals with faith, fostering a sense of hope and resilience.
Valley Rescue Mission's Family Services ministry is more than a helping hand; it's a symbol of our unwavering commitment to the community. With your support and our dedicated team, we're striving to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those facing adversity. If you're eager to get involved or learn more about our Family Services ministry, don't hesitate to reach out.
Together, we can lift up the lives of our neighbors in need, and help them build better lives for themselves.
