Welcome and thank you for visiting us online today. It is my hope, that the information you find within this site, is valuable and useful to you in learning about Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (Outreach).
Outreach is passionately committed to helping individuals, children and families in crisis. Today, more than ever, the people we serve are in need of a helping hand and a caring heart. This need sometimes takes the form of paying a utility bill for an out-of-work single mother with several children, or providing free wood for the elderly during the winter months, or preparing food bags from our food pantry that are distributed to nutritionally at-risk school children due to a lack of food in the home, or outfitting hundreds of children each year with a back-pack and school supplies because these basic items seem so far out of reach to a family on the edge.
These are not nameless or faceless individuals. Indeed, they are often closer than we realize. A neighbor, friend, brother, sister, daughter, son or grandparent---they are us under extremely difficult circumstances. At Outreach, we strive to meet the immediate critical needs of hurting individuals, families and their children. In addition, we desire to give back a sense of dignity and self-worth to those we serve through a kind face, compassionate heart and the words, "yes, we will help."
However, neither our mission nor our achievements are accomplished alone. It is through our generous donors, friends, board members, and volunteers that Outreach stands as a shining light of hope for those in crisis. I wish to express my sincere thanks to each of you for your partnership in Outreach serve the needs of those less fortunate. May God bless you.
For the Families We Serve,
Carol V. Newton Executive Director Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry
