Our Mission with community partners
Habitat For Humanity, The organization works with volunteers to restore or rebuild homes in the Mississippi Capital Area. Our volunteers who work with Habitat will receive a call when there is need and complete tasks ranging from construction to painting walls to planting gardens and so forth.
Kairos Prison Ministry, To some, the prison system may seem as foreign as a far off mission field. However, there are opportunities to minister to those who are incarcerated. Taking place over a weekend, volunteers have the opportunity to serve inside of prisons with people who are imprisoned through various roles such as group leading, kitchen staff, writing letters, chapel prayer, and a worship team.
Meals on Wheels, nutritious meals are delivered Monday-Friday to rural Hinds County citizens thanks to the Home Delivered Meals (Meals on Wheels) Program. Meals are personally distributed to homebound, elderly, and disabled individuals by Agency Staff and RSVP Volunteers, throughout the year.
Methodist Children's Home, The Methodist Children’s Home brings hope and healing to foster children with mental health needs in Mississippi. Galloway hosts supply drives, volunteers on campus, and mails birthday cards with a gift card for each child on their birthday. Additionally, Galloway participates in the “Little Light of Mine” offering each fall and by helping decorate the campus for the community event called “Share the Light” in December.
Mission Connections, Galloway serves as an outpost for the Diaper Bank of the Delta so that agencies don’t have to travel to Clarksdale to pick up diaper and feminine products for their communities here in Central Mississippi. We also, provide diapers and feminine products to our partners at First UMC of Morton – We Care Ministries, Choctaw Missions serving the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, Clausell School, and their neighbors as well as Stewpot and Grace Place closets. When a disaster hits our neighbors, we team up with the Diaper Bank of the Delta to deliver diaper and feminine products.
