Deacon Supported Ministry: REACH

One of the ministries we support through our Deacon’s Fund is REACH. REACH Ministries exists because the stigma around HIV is still as harsh as 30 years ago. Children with HIV are bullied, rejected, and isolated. Our monthly gifts help REACH offer unconditional acceptance, safe community, joy, and trust – imagine any child’s life devoid of these basic human needs. Programs include mentoring, home visits, family activities, and weekend camps–all to help them thrive beyond the stigma and grow in hope, purpose, and dignity.
 
Other organizations supported through our Deacon’s Fund include:
 
*Love in the Name of Christ (Love, INC)
*Network Ministries
*Hilltop Christian Center
*Trinity Presbyterian Church
*Victory Outreach 
*Neighborhood Clinic
*Rev. Sahara Chea – Cambodian Ministries
