Connect with an Affiliate Ministry Center
Send Relief is working with the affiliate ministry centers below to support communities in need.
- Mobile Missions Network
Mobile Missions Network is following Jesus’ example of becoming flesh and blood and moving into the “neighborhood” (John 1:14) by going to the places where the gospel has not yet been planted. Our goal is to be a bridge to the local church in the Tulsa metro area, and our focus is mobile home communities and neighborhoods that are often overlooked and marginalized. We believe that reconciliation and compassion ministry is how we were meant to walk alongside the broken and hurting, lovingly guiding them into a relationship with the only one who can mend and make them whole.
- Living Hope
The Finding Hope Center is a church-based ministry center meeting the needs of families in northwest Columbus, Ohio, by providing beds, furniture, small appliances and personal hygiene products to families who are temporarily in crisis or new to the community as refugees or immigrants.
- Bridge of Faith
Rockaway Beach, Missouri
Bridge of Faith believes in the truth of Matthew 18:5—that if we welcome children in the name of Jesus, we welcome Christ himself. We desire to follow the prayer that Jesus prayed, “Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven.” We strive to bring the kingdom of heaven down to earth through worship, meal and bus ministries, affordable thrift stores, athletics and summer programming, financial literacy classes, biblical counseling, community garden efforts, mission trips and community development projects. In doing this, we hope to transform entire generations by transforming the communities they grow up in.
- All San Diego
San Diego, California
The San Diego Baptist Association is comprised of 200 churches seeking to address the spiritual needs and community issues arising throughout 18 cities of San Diego County. A high degree of ministry also takes place in Tijuana, MX as a nearby sister city. Our ministry includes outreach to refugees and foster care families, fighting human trafficking and generational poverty, and engaging in disaster relief efforts.
- Forgotten Ministries
Forgotten Ministries equips churches and individuals with practical ways to connect with their communities. We set an example of living on mission beyond an annual project or trip by modeling different methods of running transitional housing, homeless shelters, children and teen programs, community gardens and more—all of which are used to spread the gospel and connect the church with the forgotten and marginalized!
- The Hub
The Hub is on a mission to give everyone in the city of Shreveport, Louisiana, access to a restored life in Christ. We are able to accomplish that through our two main ministries: The Lovewell Center and Purchased: Not for Sale. The Lovewell Center is a membership-based resource center for our neighbors experiencing cyclical poverty and homelessness, while Purchased serves women and children who have experienced sexual exploitation and survivors of sex trafficking.
- Appalachian Ministry of the Smokies
Appalachian Ministries of the Smokies is a poverty relief ministry that works in partnership with the local community and Carson-Newman University. Our goal is to serve families and individuals struggling to meet basic needs, and our prayer is that God would use our work to positively impact women and children in the midst of a housing crisis, as well as people suffering from food-insecurity and cyclical poverty. We would love for volunteers to partner with us in serving our neighbors and sharing the hope of Christ!
- Montgomery Baptist Association Community Ministries
The Montgomery Baptist Association, also known as Love Loud Ministries throughout Alabama’s River Region, is a community-based needs organization. Love Loud partners with local churches and ministries to meet the needs of disadvantaged families and individuals through compassion-based services—planting gospel seeds and building bridges across racial, socio-economic and spiritual barriers.
- Operation Restore Hope
Operation Restore Hope is an instrument of hope in communities that have lost the luxury of dreaming of a better life. There are many issues that weigh heavily on our neighbors and act as barriers to their environments’ transformation, but it is our earnest belief that—in order to effect change and witness a community’s transformation—the foundation of our relationships to God and others must be rebuilt. Therefore, Operation Restore Hope has embarked on a mission to create holistic community renewal in Charleston, a renewal founded on collaboration, compassion and empowerment. Using this strategic plan, our vision is to restore hope, change lives and transform communities.
