Shelter Ministries Inc., was founded in 1991 under the name of DeKalb County Operation Shelter Inc., and in 1999, the agency reorganized under the name of Shelter Ministries Inc.
Here at Shelter Ministries Inc., we strive to help the people in DeKalb County. Countless individuals and families are in great need, and we want to be here for all of the community members. We are a Christian based ministry and we know God has a purpose for us-as a ministry-and as a community.
We ask for your continued prayers for guidance and funding in order to continue our mission of “Offering light and hope through the storms of life.”
We currently assist community members with assistance for rent, utilities, prescriptions and gas vouchers for medical appointments. We also offer a fabulous food bank to the community members which has been up and running for 10 years now by our Food Pantry Coordinator!! We provide DeKalb County with the Christmas Bureau and we will be opening a clothing pantry by the end of the year.
With God’s Will and through donations, we are able to serve our community when it needs it the most. We will not take any donations that require us to limit the spreading of God’s Word. Let His light shine throughout the World and let us remember that we are blessed because of Him.
“He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.”
