There are many ministries to the poor in East Multnomah County. Food ministries, clothing ministries, shelters, and most of them are run by churches. However, the poverty is so extreme that the resources are being drained. Pantries are running out of food, clothing is available only a couple days a month, shelters need volunteers. There are some new ministries that are necessary, but right now the ministries that are already out there need support! This year’s poverty summit is focusing on partnering churches with ministries to the poor. Come and find out how to encourage your church to step up and help!
