Caritas Outreach Ministries Mission Statement
Update to Caritas Outreach Ministries
On January 13, 2014 Caritas Outreach Ministries, began serving the client families of Northwest Spokane from our Meeting House, making first floor class rooms and the foyer their new home.
This places Caritas more centrally in its northwest Spokane service area which is bounded by North Division on the east, the river to the west, Montgomery on the south and Hawthorne Road to the north plus the Five Mile area. It is served by bus routes on Maple and Ash as well as other buses that run from the park and ride area in the neighborhood.
The Meeting House offers ample parking and wheel chair accessibility.
Caritas Outreach Ministries is an ecumenical, non-profit, Christian outreach in partnership with area churches, that seeks to demonstrate Christ’s love to our Northwest Spokane neighbors in need by providing basic essentials. We covenant to serve clients without prejudice or discrimination and to preserve their dignity.
Caritas Outreach Ministries is sponsored be a coalition of Northwest Spokane churches. It’s purpose is to reach out to individuals and families in the local church neighborhood. Caritas addresses needs that are often unseen and neglected within our immediate community. As neighbors, we are working together to provide financial, material and volunteer service help to people who live north of Montgomery, west of Division, South of Hawthorne Road and in the Nine Mile Falls zip code area in Spokane County.
17 churches including Spokane Friends have combined to make a difference in the lives of God’s Children, our neighbors.
Also, we are looking for a special volunteer with interpersonal skills to interpret the work of Caritas to our community. 17 years of ministry has seen substantial turnover in leadership in Northwest Spokane churches and many don’t have the knowledge needed to appreciate and engage in what Caritas does. If interested, contact Kaye at 326-2249.
