Year-Long Partnerships

We believe in committing to serve over extended periods of time in order to form relationships with those we are serving. We are excited to maintain year-long partnerships with four amazing charities! There will be a service opportunity at each of our year-long partners at least once a month.

In 2016-2017 we will be partnering with:


SOS is excited to partner with

WHAT THEY DO: The Nehemiah Center supports at-risk families and their children by offering a safe, welcoming community. Children ranging from toddlers to teenagers go to the Center during the day to eat meals, play outside, do their homework, and be with their friends. The Nehemiah Center’s after school programs provide academic assistance to place an importance on education in the children’s lives. The goals of these programs are to teach the kids academically and to emphasize the significance of an education and their futures. The elementary program provides time and tutors to help the children with their homework, and the middle school program guides them on how to successfully go through school. The Center also institutes a time for worship, and teaches the kids about God and his unfailing love for them. Along with the physical community, the Nehemiah Center also forms a community relationally; the friendships the kids’ form at Nehemiah creates strong bonds that cause them and their families to come together as one family.

WHAT WE DO: As volunteers, EHS goes to the Nehemiah Center to tutor the kids and play with them. We spend time with them making crafts, playing on the playground, and keeping them entertained before going home. We also tutor the kids by helping them with their homework and teaching them concepts they do not understand. This impacts the kids immensely by making them feel loved and important and shows them how essential their education is

WHEN WE DO IT: EHS goes to the Nehemiah Center on Thursdays after school every month.

WHAT THEY DO: Interfaith Ministries is located in Midtown and strives to bring a diverse group of people in the community together to serve others. At Episcopal we focus on the Meals on Wheel and AniMeals programs, which help provide food for home-bound senior citizens and their spouses. Meals on Wheels helps seniors stay independent by bringing them nutritional meals to allow them to stay in their own homes. The AniMeals on Wheels program was created to give seniors food for their pets so that they would not feel compelled to share their limited resources with their pets. Both of these programs are fantastic and allow us to have a great time while helping those in the community.

WHAT WE DO: When we visit Interfaith ministries we focus on helping the community through Meals on Wheels and AniMeals on Wheels. At AniMeals on Wheels you may find yourself sorting pet food, organizing, bins, creating animal food bags, and many other activities. At Meals on Wheels you can help by packaging and organizing food and delivering meals to hungry seniors.

WHEN WE DO IT: Once a month on Saturdays.
