Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

 

COMPASSION: We help to provide for basic needs including food, shelter and transportation through our Community Kitchen, food pantry, case management, and utility and rent assistance programs.

Two staff social workers aid Beeson Senior Services and Homelessness Prevention clients long-term to achieve stability and independence. Our Transportation Ministry helps our clients get to important appointments including doctors' visits, grocery shopping, and other important errands.

WHOLENESS:

Urban Kids is a holistic after-school and summer learning program for students in third through eighth grade. Students receive academic and arts enrichment, field trips, homework help and tutoring, supplemental nutrition, health education, summer camp experiences, and a summer learning program to prevent summer learning loss.

The Joe Rush Center in Midfield houses work groups who come to Birmingham to paint houses for low-income disabled and elderly homeowners in Jefferson County. It is vital work to ensure the upkeep and maintenance of housing in our community. This often means that families can maintain homeowner's insurance, preventing homelessness.

WE Community Gardens was founded in 2008 in partnership with the Church Without Walls to create a source of fresh, natural produce in the West End Community and supplement food security. We employ 3 youth interns in the garden and hope to use it to expand employment opportunities and job training for young people in our community. We also sell affordable produce at community markets and give away hundreds of pounds of produce each year.
