“Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, just as it is well with your soul.” – 3 John 1:2
We believe at WFCM that there is more to helping those in need than simply putting food on their tables. We understand, as do so many people, that when you are struggling financially it can seem like everything is set against you. Those who come through our doors know that lesson entirely too well. That is why we are so grateful to be serving those in need in another very important way.
Our Client Services Program is designed specifically to help our clients recover from financial hardships. We understand that things from a loss of a job to student loans can create an overwhelming sense of dread through financial debt.
Our services include emergency financial assistance with rent, utilities, and other basic needs; budgeting assistance and financial literacy education (5 budgeting programs per month); a women’s bible study group, senior luncheons, laundry ministry and referrals to other social service providers for needs such as clothing, ESL classes, counseling, and more. Two of the most prominent ways we help are:
Pathways to Success – This mentoring program is designed to help 10-12 families per year with intensive financial education, budget counseling, and financial aid. It is combined with WFCM food pantry appointments, which in total provides families the resources to work towards financial self-sufficiency.
Our goal is not just to provide food for our clients but give them the financial stability moving forward to have happy and stable lives. Through your generosity and the work of staff and volunteers we impact more lives each and every year, We look forward to growing and expanding our reach thanks to people like you.
