The Outreach Ministry provides low-income Kent residents and the homeless with food, water, clothing, utility shut-off assistance, drivers licenses and IDs, referral information, and prayer always. We also provide school supplies and household furnishings, when they are available. Those seeking help must live within the Kent school district, be disabled, have children living with them, or are senior citizens. We always help the homeless.
The ministry began almost 30 years ago when St. James saw the need arise. During these desperate times, our office is a lifeline for those in need. It has evolved into a place for monetary help, prayer, and a place to give hope to those who are on the edge. It affects all in the community who come through our red double doors.
With Christ’s help, we reach out with respect and love to those in need. It is one part of our efforts in the cause of social justice.
