Social Ministry Fast Facts

Early Beginnings: Early experiences matter – creating healthy families and developing quality child care leads to positive outcomes for kids families and communities. What happens in early childhood sets the stage for future learning, behavior and health.

Adoption | Pregnancy Counseling | Home visiting | Young family supports | Connecting families to child care | Training and guidance for child care providers

Youth Interventions: We know it is absolutely possible to hold kids accountable while also allowing them to make amends and build skills for healthier futures. Keeping kids out of the juvenile justice system, when appropriate, makes economic sense and produces better outcomes for kids, families and communities.

School-based interventions and support | Restorative justice | Youth Court as juvenile justice diversion | After-school enrichment

Therapy Services: Behavioral health is an important part of our overall well-being. Addressing mental health issues early results in health-care cost savings, safer schools and better outcomes.

Individual & family counseling | Group treatment for gambling addiction | Batterers treatment | Residential psychiatric treatment for kids

Senior Independence: People should have opportunities to live independently as they ago. It is possible for seniors to get the care they need in their home communities if we work together.

Companionship | Care management | Service hubs | Volunteer connections

Affordable Housing: Having an affordable place to live is a basic necessity for every family. Preserving affordable housing keeps communities strong.

New construction | Preservation | Property management 

Humanitarian Work: From rebuilding flooded homes to rebuilding lives in a new country, standing with people in times of crisis is central to our humanity.

Refugee resettlement & integration | Foster care for unaccompanied refugee minors | Disaster response
