Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Family Services, Health, Human Services

Mission: The mission of The Get Together Northwest is to engage business people in serving Christ-centered ministries using the gifts that God has equipped them with to run their businesses. These gifts include their particular professional expertise, network of contacts and entrepreneurial and life experience. We accomplish our mission by holding monthly luncheons where business people have the opportunity to build relationships with representatives from local, Christ-centered ministries. A portion of every Get Together meeting is spent presenting the needs of these ministries and giving business people the opportunity to come up with creative solutions to meet them. Needs are met in a number of ways by the business people – sharing expertise, making contacts on behalf of a ministry and mobilizing volunteers, to name a few. We do not fund-raise for ministries. Our focus is on getting people involved through our NetCARING™ approach to networking, which offers professionals the opportunity to demonstrate their particular skills and character, creating more meaningful connections. We invite you to join us as we practice NetCARING™ over lunch and then brainstorm using our gifts, talents, and connections to help meet the needs of our partner ministries. We meet the second Thursday of the month from September through May (except December) from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm at Trinity Vineyard Church - 17150 Spring Cypress Rd., Cypress, TX 77429

Get Together Northwest is a top class nonprofit organization. It is not only making a huge impact locally, it is also equipping and encouraging other nonprofits to reach their full potential through relevant ministry and business workshops. Monthly luncheons/gatherings provide outstanding "netcaring" opportunities, where real needs of people from all walks of life are met by people of like-mind who have a passion for both individual and community transformation. I am proud and privileged to be a part of GTNW, and always make a point of inviting others to experience this unique, friendly, non-threatening and dynamic event for themselves.

The Get Together Northwest practices diversity and inclusion in making Local its true Mission. It connects business leaders with vetted, established ministries/non-profits and facilitates the meeting of needs. I have the pleasure of serving on the Get Together Northwest's board. It is an honor to be part of an organization that champions other organizations with integrity and transparency.

The Mission of Yahweh is one of the fortunate ministries that benefits from the Get Together Northwest. Volunteers have served as mentors for our homeless women and provided expertise in the areas of social media, security, medical and retail services Additionally, we have received much needed in-kind donations of food, clothing, furniture, toileties, diapers and even a defibrillator.

The ability to connect business people with non profits is awesome. Business people have so much to offer and want to help and Get Together provides the infrastructure for them to do just that. It also allows the non profits to help each other using the same forum.

I first learned about The Get Together when I was invited to volunteer and donate at the Mission of Yahweh by the fabulous Tonya Frye. Our homeschool group went and had a pizza party with the kids there & brought all of our clothes and toys with us. These kids touched my heart, and Tonya was so caring and passionate about helping! I was inspired and immediately went and organized a drive at my church for the Mission! That is what it's all about. Connecting those in need with those who want to give. I am so amazed by Tonya and her efforts, and my husband and I would love to get involved and help more! Amazing organization with amazing people with true hearts for service!

It is an absolute blessing to be a part of Get Together Northwest! I always enjoy telling other nonprofits about this incredible network connecting businesses with nonprofits. What an ingenious idea! Every city needs to have a satellite of this group working within it. The friendships made, provisions and donations, support and encouragement are incomparable!!! I look forward each month to our luncheons to see the other directors because it is such an encouragement. The needs which are met each month right while we sit around the table would probably not be met without this organization. The organizational plan and concept work extremely well and flow seamlessly each month.
I've been a part of Get Together Northwest for 4 years and have been blessed both personally and professionally by the association. The ministry I direct has been infinitely assisted in huge ways by our partnership with GTNW.

I got involved with this group - because of the amount of people being helped by all of these partner ministries that we support. I found it a great way to combine the efforts of business with the local community charities and frankly - that's where the help should come from.

The partner ministries the Get Together NW supports - work with very little operating capital - and rely totally on donations - their passion is beyond measure - Their hearts are 100% invested -

The people that support the Get Together - know what a great job they do in screening the ministries to make sure they are who they say they are and they do what they say they do! --- Then they help to get the word out to the community not only to solicit support - but so those who have these needs - know where to go for help .....

Check us out!
