Homelessness & Housing Missions
WPC was one of the founding congregations of Contact Ministries, whose mission is “to daily serve the greater Springfield community by providing food, shelter, clothing, financial assistance referrals, and life skills education and training through Christ’s love & compassion,” with a broad array of services, including shelter for homeless women and children. WPC has two Board members, provided $12,176 in 2021, and takes part in many individual projects as described elsewhere. The PW Elizabeth Circle also typically volunteers monthly at their housing center.
Helping Hands assists people with shelter and financial management assistance. WPC provides $4,000 annually, and members provide the shelter dinner monthly. In 2020, Westminster supplied the agency with an additional $4,747 grant for emergency needs.
Get involved: Volunteers are needed the second Friday of each month to provide dinner.
