A View from the Pew

 “Our church—Our Lady of Mt. Carmel--appreciates the fundamental support that South Louisville Community Ministries provides our neighbors and friends.  We gladly partner with South Louisville Community Ministries in assisting our South End individuals and families to meet their basic financial, emotional and nutritional needs. 

This partnership is experienced weekly by church members who deliver meals to senior citizens through the Meals on Wheels program.  It is demonstrated by our food closet volunteers who stock shelves, deliver bread, fill grocery carts and unload the Dare to Care truck. 

The dedication of the staff of SLCM enables our parishioners to financially assist our community residents who consistently request financial help on a daily basis.  By partnering with SLCM we can "stretch our congregation's dollar" to provide emergency financial relief to more of our neighbors.  Also during the person's appointment at SLCM, they can request on site counseling to effectively resolve other personal issues.  Finally our partnership was easily arranged and can be copied by all other churches/organizations/groups in the South End.”
