Social Action & Justice Ministry
To promote solutions to poverty and hunger within the San Diego area. To accomplish our mission, we will advocate for, and build relationships with, people living in poverty and those that serve them.
Through acts of compassion and charity, we seek to build a community of opportunity and possibility for people living in poverty in San Diego County.
We connect volunteers with opportunities for service through partnerships with community-based organizations.
As advocates for people living in poverty in San Diego, we:
- assist families with the Food Stamp application process
- tutor children from SPIN families at our church on Saturday mornings
- help students with their reading skills at Cherokee and Euclid elementary schools
- purchase and help distribute shoes, uniforms, and health necessities to students at six area schools
- mentor teen moms and children of incarcerated parents, and tutor refugee students
- cook and serve hundreds of meals to the neighbors of Normal Heights United Methodist Church once a month.
