Family House is the largest family homeless shelter in northwest Ohio. Family House Church was started to reach the kids of the shelter with the good news of Jesus. Out of this, we are developing a men's & women's ministry focused on discipleship and building deeper relationships with the families from the house.
East Toledo Family Center
We have partnered with the East Toledo Family Center since the beginning. Our main office is in the third floor of this building. We coach in their sports programs, their parking lot was our host for our Co.Eats program, and one of our tutoring programs is out of this location.
Oakdale Elementary School
Every Monday afternoon we meet with teens after school through a program called Young Men of Excellence. We have been working with them since 2016, mentoring students and walking through life with them.
The Walbridge project was a school building located just outside the city. It has been renovated and is still being transformed to serve as a hub for ministries. We have renovated a space to provide housing for interns and residents, as well as work and witness teams.
Where are we going next?
We see potential throughout the city. Connecting communities and sharing resources is our focus to build the city up. We are always looking for new opportunities to serve in the current and new communities.
The Believe Center is a huge part of such an important community in Toledo. We have partnered with them to provide resources to the people of the neighborhood, coaching the sports programs, and invest back in the community through their events. This fall begins our tutoring program to provide a safe space for students to succeed in their education.
Cherry Street Mission
Cherry Street Mission is one of the homeless shelters in downtown Toledo. We have a service in the men's building every week. On Fridays, we have two men's bible studies that meet to dig deeper into God's Word.
