Mission

Our mission is to serve Christ by being a voice for and a help to people with urgent physical, economic, social, or spiritual needs so that they might become ‘whole’ persons in body, soul and spirit. We seek to enable individuals in need to move toward relative independence; to serve as a referral source to other agencies and avoid duplication of services; to train and facilitate the helpful involvement of volunteers in community needs; to enhance community understanding and awareness of the needs of those in poverty; and to refer persons to local churches for continuing Christian ministry and support and to serve as a resource to such supportive congregations.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to assist Jackson County residents in crisis, helping them to move toward relative independence.

Our goal is to assist those in poverty by addressing food and housing insecurity. Our food pantry and financial support help residents to 'get back on their feet' and become more self-sufficient. We also refer families to other local agencies who can support them.

United Christian Ministries of Jackson County reaches these goals by the continued operation of our agency, and by expansion of our services. Our services are funded through donations, grants, and fundraising. As needs grow, we have grown our staff and services.

An additional staff member, Director of Outreach, was added in 2020. Their focus is on communicating our services to the community, building relationships with other agencies and supporters, and creating financial stability for our agency.

In 2021, plans are underway for an expansion of the pantry and client areas.
