Goal of Mission:
Building Individuals Families Marriages
As we pour oil and wine into the wounds of the broken we strive to fulfill Christ's example to love after the pattern of the Good Samaritan. Life is more manageable when lived out in the setting of genuine Christian fellowship and accountability. The goal of the mission is to join with the local church and other organizations to form a networking partnership. As we reach out together, helping the community in practical and spiritual ways, we proclaim the message that...Jesus Cares.
Cares Ministries has been helping people in crisis since 1980 and has
been incorporated since 1983. For over thirty years, we provided a
safe place for pregnant and troubled teens, many of whom had been physically and
sexually abused. Jesus Cares Ministries Maternity Program offered a live-in program, as well as counseling,
referrals, and an outreach to family members of our residents. From
1997- 2009 Jesus Cares Ministries Men's Program serviced those
struggling with homelessness due to the bondage of addiction cycles. F.I.T. (Families In Transition) Housing operated in the valley from 2009 - 2016 reaching out to couples and individuals by providing safe, affordable housing. We have witnessed firsthand how various unresolved abuse and trauma issues experienced in the past can significantly impact the future stability of individuals, therefore impacting the family dynamic. Working alongside the local church, we mentored our residents by offering various professional and ministry services. The ministry offers training tools and support to other ministries/churches wanting to stabilize individuals/families in a live-in or outreach setting.
In the past few years we have had opportunities to receive more skill and training in counseling specifically targeted to those struggling with addictions, grief, and past trauma. Biblical counsel, conferences and workshops for the community, housing referrals and assistance, parenting classes, money management, stewardship mentoring, annual retreats, and various support services are offered in a discipleship setting. We have developed
our own curriculum, as well as utilized the resources of other
ministries to make available the best possible Christ-centered tools
for mending hearts and lives.
After years of working with those struggling with addictions as well as coming alongside of those whose spouses were struggling, the ministry saw a desperate need to develop a respite program for women. This short-term respite care provides a quiet place for clients we are mentoring. They have an opportunity, in a safe and nurturing setting, to put their focus on Christ and learn some tools that will help them make healthier choices for their future.
