How can you help?
All partnerships are critical to our success and your help is needed!
Church congregations expand their local mission outreach through prayer, financial support and in-kind donations. Businesses encourage their employees and customers to get involved. Civic groups create awareness with strong networking and volunteer support. Together, we make it happen!
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'
"The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine,
you did for me."
Matthew 25: 35, 36, 40
How do we help?
The truth is that many families are just one life crisis away from being propelled into poverty.
We are committed to battle the effects of poverty headon to stabilize families and help move them into a more abundant life.
We are a coalition of local churches, businesses, civic groups, and caring individuals representing community at its very best!
Sweetwater Mission has stabilized families
by providing basic needs
and transformed lives
through education and employment opportunities.
