Join Hands Ministry offers a wide range of Services and Assistance programs which include but not limited to:
Join Hands Ministry has coordinated the Christmas Holiday Network program within Perry County since Dec. 2000. This program is designed to help families in need by assisting with holiday gifts and extras for children ages 14 and under.
In 2019 through our Christmas program we/you, Perry County provided 841 kiddos from 423 families with a great Christmas morning. It took 41 churches, 30 businesses, 20 civic groups and 136 families/individuals with 29 volunteers for a total of 616 volunteer hours.
In 2020, 430+ first to twelfth graders were given school supplies. In 2019 100+ received free hair cuts and in 2020 over 300 received a new pair of shoes. Join Hands Ministry back-2-school campaign invites the public to participate either by donating financially or by donating new backpacks and school supplies for those children in need.
Community Health Education works to empower rural communities to conquer barriers that are specific to their communities. This occurs, as our team and network (made up of staff, volunteers, supporters and partners) work to equip the Perry County communities to identify issues and mobilize resources to achieve positive, sustainable change. The outcome is that lives and local communities are transformed as people come to work together to address their local needs.
