Mission

Divine Truth Ministry is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves the most vulnerable residents of New York City, specifically in the borough of Queens. In 2015, Founder Soline Celestin and a group of dedicated volunteers witnessed a growing number of their neighbors that were living paycheck to paycheck and many were unable to financially stay in stable housing in the community. They saw a need for an organization that would step up with a helping hand in times of need. Divine Truth Ministry has created a place of refuge for all those who need it. Although, Divine Truth Ministry is a spiritual organization, our impact is beyond the walls of any one building.

What we aim to solve

Divine biggest struggle is retaining and engaging donors. We do fundraiser and we signed up with the different donation website and nothing works. We paid thousands of dollars for software that doesn't work out.

Come One, Come All

Our main mission since 2016, has always been to help those in need and provide some of the basic necessities primarily wholesome foods. We want to make a difference in the lives of those in the Communities that we serve and are not afforded the same opportunities. At DTM, we want to make sure that everyone has nutritious foods, without sacrificing other basic essentials (such as housing payments, utilities, etc.). At DTM, we provide the Community with whole foods that include fruits, greens, whole grains and various other healthy items. DTM provides educational services to the members as well by way of handouts within meal packages that provide basic food group information in addition to the importance of nutrient dense foods.

Charting impact

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

Our goals is to keep pushing and keep writing to the donors until we can get through somebody who can help us make more of an impact in our community.

The Organization writes letter to the stores around the community and we hire a grant writer. We look for donors online and we purchased a donors list with companies that donate to non for profits.

Our Board develops and implements clear policies to guide operational leadership and the responsiveness of our organization's services.

We completed all the holidays letter for this year and we got one donor to give. We are hoping and praying that more donors will help us. We are getting ready to give back for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
