Will you help meet the need of a specific individual or community organization? As needs are shared, we will post and encourage you to MEET THE NEED! Please create an account so that you will be ready to MEET THE NEED!
• Volunteer and Resource Needs
When a local charity posts a need for 30 volunteers or 100 blankets that same need is seen on their "Volunteer" button or "Most Needed Items" buttons. Simultaneously, members of local churches and employees at local companies see those exact SAME needs on the "Serve the Community" button on their church's and employer web sites. Individuals and groups commit to meet those needs through any of those web sites, and the remaining number of volunteers and items needed adjusts automatically across all sites.
• Events and Drives
No more sign up sheets or spreadsheets. No more, divide and conquer where "our church will do this" and "yours does that". Instead, the same needs for city wide events appear on the web sites and Facebook pages of all participating organizations. So people from different denominations, churches and other walks of life end up at the same locations, working together. Also, local toy, backpack and food drives are no longer done "in a vacuum". Meet The Need shows all participating organizations where each family is already booked – no more booking families for the same drive multiple times.
• Families in Need
Meet The Need provides all organizations in your city with a powerful Shared Case Management system. Administrators for local charitable organizations and churches, will know "who has been where and gotten what from whom". Family needs are also shared with those who can help, anonymously, with privacy and security of information as the highest priority.

Gap Ministries are ministries that form from within our churches to fill in the "gaps" where services do not currently exist to meet the needs in St. Joseph County. These ministries form out of the passions and gifts of those in our congregations. It is not our desire to duplicate any social service or existing ministry already being offered in our county. It is our desire to meet the needs that are not currently being met.
These ministries are meant to be shared responsibility among our church partners. It is individuals coming together across denomination lines, to use their God given gifts and talents to meet the needs of those less fortunate within our community. How might God use you in this way? Are you skilled in mechanics, and like to fix cars? Do you cut hair and want to offer your services with this skill? Are you skilled in fixing appliances and want to offer your time and talent for Kingdom work in this way? Contact us today to see how you can be involved in developing and/or using your skills in a Ministry to serve those in St. Joseph County. 269-858-5583 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
