We partner with Transformation Ministries in outreach to the youth of inner city South Bend. Transformation Ministries exists to see the youth of South Bend become positive influencers within their families, schools, and communities. As a ministry seeking to provide hope and a better future to youth and families, volunteers are the hands and feet to making that possible. A few of the ways that you can partner with Transformation Ministries are: Prepare and serve a meal once a month, become a 1:1 mentor for a school year, homework tutoring, and more.

Safe Families for Children
Harvest Bible Chapel, Granger partners with Safe Families for Children to provide a network of families to love and care for kids in need. Safe Families for Children seeks to provide temporary homes for kids while their parents deal with crisis situations—whether that be sudden homelessness, loss of a job, or maybe a medical emergency. There are many ways to get involved in Safe Families, such as becoming a host family, providing coaching to a parent in crisis, or supporting host families by donating clothes, diapers, food and other items.
If you are interested in becoming a host family, parent case-coach, or desire more information about Safe Families, please contact Jessie Klein: firstname.lastname@example.org.
