Transitions Ministry Center
The Transitions Ministry Center is a new ministry, hosted by the McMinnville First Christian Church, to serve persons experiencing homelessness and unstable housing. These persons are increasing in numbers at an alarming rate in the city of McMinnville, and the issues they face far outpace the current capabilities of the city to address their needs and the resulting problematic outcomes that result.
The first efforts of the Transitions Ministry Center have entailed establishing a partnership with McMinnville Cooperative Ministries, and the Tuesday/Thursday Breakfast program. This involves not only working with Cooperative Ministries, but also Hope on the Hill, YCAP, and Provoking Hope.
Beginning in September of 2018, the Tuesday/Thursday Breakfast Program has moved to the Dining Room of the McMinnville First Christian Church. An average of 27 guests are served on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, between 9:00 am - 10:30 am.
As a result of local research, the city of McMinnville's Subcommittee on Homelessness has identified 4 specific goal areas related to unsheltered youth, senior women, veterans and vehicular campers...
Ongoing homeless counts and anecdotal reports indicate these numbers are continuing to grow. The 2018 "Point in Time Homeless Count" for Yamhill County provides current statistical data.
This is an ambitious project, and it is impossible for it to be a success without support from the community! Please consider helping this ministry succeed through either volunteer service or financial assistance.
Thank you for your support!
