which Holy Scripture teaches is synonymous. God’s Word throughout commanded the poor be ministered to, helped, and cared for. It is our joy and privilege to serve Bay County in these areas.
Beginning February 9th, 1998 in one room in one building God has blessed the efforts of His people in this united godly effort to meet the needs of thousands of hungry and hurting people. “A Sheltering Tree” launched their ministry to November 2001, a much-needed community help group for girls and women needing help in the pregnancy care area. Confidential counseling, maternity care, diapers, wipes and referrals all mark this ministry to hundreds each year in the Bay County area.
Churches of many denominations as well as civic groups began to come along side of us and serve with us. In November 2012 we moved into The Center of Hope building, enabling us to expand in scope and the amount of food, clothes, and pregnancy care.
We minister to people giving dignity, confidentiality, and encouragement, as Jesus commanded in Matthew 25:34-40. We give generously without any bias or prejudice in any area age, imparity, color, nationality, gender, or religion. None of our workers receive any monetary compensation or salary…all serve simply for the joy of helping others.
If your church, civic group, or workplace would like to help us on a regular basis, occasionally, or once a year we would gladly welcome the help. Here’s how: Donation of monies, clothes, or a food drive by your company or group, remember, we do not sell anything; you give…. we give.
We need volunteers:
We are open for clients Monday through Friday 8:30am - 11:30am.
