Provide Faith-Based and Community Resource Support
Our WeCare program is designed to be the continuation of the care they received from Mercy Mall. Our volunteer team texts all visitors who provide a phone number and offer further prayer support, community resources, and spiritual support in the way of finding a local church, help in reading the Bible they were given, or in answering any spiritual questions. We strive to be a conduit for greater impact and change in the hearts and lives of our clients
The pandemic threatened the connection with our clients, as we were no longer allowing clients to come into Mercy Mall and shop for their families giving us time to hug, sit next to, serve them a cup of coffee, and learn about their situation. We have recently started inviting clients back into the lobby to shop miscellaneous items as well as offer a cup of coffee, share literature on community resources, and to encourage… while being considerate of Covid safety concerns.
We have lots of hopes and dreams for this program which will take community-minded churches partnering with us to help support families experiencing crises. Ultimately, we want our clients to have the opportunity to be set free from addiction, financial distress, abusive homes, trafficking, and unsafe and oppressive environments. There are resources out there if someone is willing to do the hard work – our job is to pass these resources on, pray, and encourage them.
Galatians 5:1 “ It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
