Outreach

 
Trinity United Methodist Church has long been involved in reaching out to the community and those in need. Because of our urban location, we are faced daily with the problem of homelessless and poverty, and many of our church's outreach efforts focus on these areas.
 

Outreach Committee  

Trinity has an active Outreach committee that organizes and supports regular outreach programs and special projects. These efforts include work with the following:
  • Central Presbyterian Outreach Center food pantry
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Trinity Table soup kitchen
  • Trinity Hall housing and assessment center for women and women with children
  • Wesley Community Center's Walk for Others
  • AIDS Walk

Our Partners                                                   

Action Ministries

Beginning in 2017, Trinity United Methodist Church embarked on an exciting partnership with Action Ministries, a non-profit that serves as the anti-poverty ministry of the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church. Action Ministries works to end the cycle of poverty by focusing on hunger relief, housing, and education. Action Ministries currently operates two programs at Trinity, our Trinity Table Community Kitchen and Trinity Assessment Center for rapid rehousing for homeless women and children. Please see our Trinity Table page for more information on this program. 

 

Trinity Community Ministries

  
Trinity Community Ministries began in 1981 as a part of Trinity United Methodist Church. Responding to the needs of the homeless in downtown Atlanta, it opened a 30 bed shelter for homeless men in the church's basement. Later that same year, a soup kitchen was started on Sunday afternoons. In the years since, TCM incorporated as a nonprofit organization that included members from other supporting churches. With incorporation, TCM expanded its funding base to include grants from both governmental and private entities. In 1989, TCM responded to the need for long term solutions to the problems of homelessness and opened Trinity House, also housed in the basement of  Trinity United Methodist Church. Trinity House replaced the shelter as a transitional program to help homeless men again become full contributing members of society.
   
Trinity Community Ministries (TCM) exists to provide food, clothing, shelter and counseling to the hungry and homeless in our community. TCM also helps to break down barriers between all segments of society by providing a method and opportunity for churches, individuals, and other organizations to participate in this mission and to understand the need for this outreach ministry.

Based on four program goals and ten guiding principles, this 36-bed transitional shelter provideds homeless men recovering from from substance abuse with support needed to continue to overcome addiction. Each year, this program successfully prepares individuals to become self-sustaining members of society with functional households, sobriety, and full time employment.
