in our community!

You’re probably familiar with the expression ‘If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime’. But what if the man trying to learn to fish doesn’t have a pole or bait? Maybe there’s more to this story!

Your donation to Wesley Mission Center feeds, teaches AND provides the tools for a lifetime of success for families in our community. 

You can change that. Your donation interrupts financial crisis and stabilizes the family - but that’s not all. It also provides resources and individual coaching to help families break the cycle they’re in and plan for the future.

Our prayer is that ALL families who call MISD home will experience peace and greater hope for the future because of God’s grace and your generosity. You can change lives in MISD by making a year-end gift to the Wesley Mission Center.

May you be blessed as you are a blessing to others!

Merry Christmas,

Carmin MacMillan
Executive Director

Jenny’s Story

Jenny, a single mom, came to the Mission Center because after paying rent and utilities, she didn’t have enough money for groceries. She felt overwhelmed and out of options.

Jenny came to our food pantry, but left with more than food. After meeting with an empowerment coach she realized that if she didn’t make drastic changes to her lifestyle - she risked losing her home. Together with her coach, Jenny worked out a long-term plan to maximize her limited income. She came back for monthly coaching sessions, where she continued to access the food pantry and received items from the Mission Center Thrift Store.

Now, Jenny doesn’t have to make the choice between feeding her kids or keeping their lights on. She does both - easily. She’s managing her household finances, saving for emergencies, and setting an excellent example for her children. Jenny now has the tools to keep her family’s future secure.

So far this year, we have helped more than:

  • 2000 seniors and families receive groceries
  • 600 parents through financial coaching
  • 100 students attend classes to improve employment
  • 75 families receive an interest free loan
  • 200 seniors and families with emergency financial assistance
