GPS strives to work alongside various local organizations trying to fix problems and meet the needs that plague many families and individuals in our area. Joining efforts towards a solution in mutual agreement creates more resources and opportunities. We strive at GPS Ministries to resolve problems and to supply for the needs in our community. Staying focused on the solution and not the problem.
We ask our clients to come back and volunteer some of their time to help the ministry help others. Our Give Back program creates a relationship and respect between our clients and us. If a client is unable to give back due to health, family, or other valid reasons, this is understandable and not held against them. It is not our place to judge others for their misfortunes or ignore their needs.
