It is such a privilege to be part of Parker Street Ministries. The staff is so hard working and selfless. I have seen this first hand. I have met people who's lives have been transformed through the love and service of this ministry! There are so many stories of how God has used Parker Street Ministries in incredible ways. I believe that once you see for yourself the evidence of what God is doing (and has done) in this neighborhood that you, too, will be drawn to be part of it.

Parker Street's staff and volunteers are the real deal. Their passion for serving their community is like no other. They truly put the needs of the PSM residents above their own. From top to bottom this is a world class organization.

i consider time away from my family very carefully before making a commitment to serve. With Parker Street Ministries i did not hesitate to make time for this amazing ministry. The benefits of this ministry to the Parker Street neighborhood and the city of Lakeland is consistently recognized by civic organizations as "irreplaceable." Parker Street Ministries is making an impact on the generations that will be joining the adult society in a few short years ensuring they will be productive and live God centered lives passing their beliefs and values on to future generations. I consider it a privilege to serve Parker Street Ministries.

Parker Street Ministries is an example of what makes America different. Unselfish individuals dedicating their lives to serving those in need of personal and spiritual healing. Providing Love, Hope and a message of Faith in Christ our Savior is the daily mission of those that not only work in the neighborhood but call the neighborhood home. When visiting the facilities and meeting the people it is immediately apparent that PSM is providing "hope" through a message of God's plan for all his creation. All those who enter can expect to have the full counsel of those are privileged to serve under the PSM banner. As a board member i have gained much more than i have given in being a part of the lives of those serving and those being served. To have a solid foundation in a neighborhood of turmoil, hatred, abuse, hopelessness and perpetual generations of dependent citizens is the only chance of changing the community. PSM provides that "solid foundation" built on solid ground provided by our creator the Lord God Almighty.

It has been and honor and a privilege to serve on the Parker Street Board. This ministry is made up of a staff and group of volunteers that are amazing individuals who not only work daily but many also living in a neighborhood in need of hope and someone to see them and care. They care for the children with an amazing afternoon program designed to help kids thrive through tutoring and activities geared to keep them on track despite what other factors may be keeping them behind. As important as this program is to this neighborhood there is also much more going on......this entire community is touched daily by those serving being the "hands and feet" of Jesus daily through everyday acts of kindness and connecting.

Parker Street Ministries is everything an urban ministry should want to be. They value and fight for the dignity of the residents. Their staff and volunteers live in the neighborhood as residents. Parker Street Ministries promotes, supports and champions justice, mercy and reconciliation throughout their neighborhood and the Lakeland community as a whole. Many ministries invest in and focus on services. While Parker Street definitely excels in great services through their after school tutoring, summer camps, community festivals, Bible study, rehabilitation of buildings, etc., their strongest asset is their investment in the people of the neighborhood. This relational ministry changes lives on a daily basis by loving each and every individual well and focusing on bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ into the lives of the kids and adults throughout the neighborhood. Some of the best and most rewarding work they doing is in living out the Gospel after hours doing things not in a job description but things that let the people of the neighborhood know they are truly loved.

Review from Guidestar
November 8, 2012

A local non-profit helping local residents and families in meeting their educational, social, economic and spiritual needs. In the process of reaching out to meet these needs, Parker Street Ministries is also building and/or rebuilding a blighted neighborhood and returning it to its residents with new life and hope.

Parker Street Ministries is an integral part of a poverty-stricken downtown neighborhood in Lakeland, FL. I have been involved since 2008 as a board member, volunteer and financial donor. Parker Street Ministries is unique in that staff members and volunteers have made a decision to be intentional residents in the neighborhood they serve on a daily basis. By becoming involved in the lives of the neighborhood families in an intimate and deliberate way, we see positive changes taking place; broken famlies are being mended, residents are working to improve their living conditions and children are improving in their school work. This ministry has given hope to families who believed there was no hope. With the recently purchased and renovated facilities located in the heart of the neighborhood, we are now able to ministry to the entire family unit providing academic enrichment, a computer lab, financial workshops, summer camp and special events. We are grateful for the many volunteers that help serve the needs in this community. We are delighted as board members to see that the staff always exceedes their yearly goals and they continue to surprise us with new ways that this community can be served.

I have been involved in Parker Street Ministries as a volunteer, financial supporter and board member for the last 10 years. The staff are the most dedicated people I've ever had the privilege of knowing and working with and the contributions of the ministry to the neighborhood have made profound and lasting changes in the lives of the children and families they serve. They are conscientious stewards of every dollar that is entrusted to them and work long, long hours to ensure the optimum level of service to the Parker Street neighborhood. The community of Lakeland is fortunate to have this ministry.

Parker Street Ministries is committed to providing outstanding service to the members of a community that is economically depressed and spiritually shallow. One of the key components that sets this ministry apart from others is that many of the staff members live in the neighborhood where they serve. They are able to build deep relationships with their neighbors and have a clearer understanding of the needs of the community. The ministry's main focus is the children and youth of the neighborhood. Parker Street Ministries abides by the philosophy, that if the children and youth can be influenced when they are young, they will be less likely to make poor decisions later in life, and be able to break the oppressive cycles many of their families face.
