Providing hope & help to those in need in Monroe & Union County
As much as you did it to these the least of my brothers & sisters, you did it to me.” (Matthew 25:40)
Programs & Projects
To provide spiritual and physical help and hope to those in need, with the encouraging and loving heart of Christ and without judgment or cynicism.
We aim to glorify God through our daily interactions with those who come through our doors with any and every need. We seek to share the gospel through our daily lunch and Bible study; offer financial support, emergency shelter, household goods and food assistance for those in crisis; and provide material and educational support for those seeking employment. As needed, we will accomplish our goals through strong partnerships with area churches and other Union County ministries and organizations.
Donations are much appreciated and go a long way towards helping those in need. Thank you for considering a tax-deductible donation to Operation Reach Out to support these projects and programs.
