Our January-February-March 2024 PayIt4Ward Collection will benefit The Jubilee Center at Shelter Care Ministries.

Jubilee Center is a day program for adults who live with chronic mental illness who may be homeless or at risk of homelessness. The center promotes peace and compassion for marginalized people who are often left out of community conversations.

The staff of the Jubilee Center welcomes members at the door and provides advocacy, case management, intervention, and most importantly, a caring, nurturing environment of hospitality and welcome. Members also enjoy activities, hot meals, and social events. The most important gift Shelter Care feels they give their Jubilee members is "being seen."

Your donations will support the work of the Jubilee Center enriching the lives of their members and offering fullness that would otherwise be missing in their world. For more information, visit shelter-care.org .

A thermometer-graph will be displayed at church and updated as donations are received. We are setting a goal of $500 and hope to reach or surpass that goal to support this worthy cause. Donations may be sent in or dropped off to the church office, or made electronically through the Spring Creek UCC website.
