In these uncertain economic times, we hear often of the hardships people are facing. Truth is, history attests that no matter the year or the socio-economic conditions, need is an ever present condition of humanity. The poor have, and will always be among us.
The Bible tells us of a specific remedy in Deuteronomy 15:11: “For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy need, in thy land.”
The Timberlake Outreach Center is a place where God’s plan is perfected by connecting those in need with those wanting to give. Clients and donors, are thankful there is a store that delivers what it advertises, namely: when in need, you can come and pick out clothing, baby items, diapers, personal care items, furniture and more – – and you can even talk with a resource or 29:11 case manager, or take GED, ESL, Budgeting or Parenting classes.
When you are able to donate food, furnishings, clothing, and personal care items, you give knowing that it will be re-given free of charge. Our relocated Receiving Center is on the back side of the Timberlake Outreach Center.
To donors, we say “Thank You!” Your generosity and obedience in giving makes a difference in the lives of so many. To those needing, we say, “Welcome! How can we help you?”
There is no place like the Open Door Mission. Whether a prayer request, a referral to a community resource, clothing, baby items, furniture, or a spot in one of our in-house programs, history and God proves again and again He will cover our nakedness!
