To serve, educate and inspire people through student, family and financial stability services in partnership with our communities.
Branches was established in 1973 as the urban and social justice agency of what is now the South East District of the United Methodist Church. Up until 1999, Branches focused on grassroots organizing, advocacy and working with community members who were disadvantaged and/or experiencing social injustice. During this period, Branches focused resources in the areas of social crisis, immigration, housing, hospice care and hurricane relief, among others. Since 2000, Branches has embarked on developing and implementing programs that address the root causes of poverty and address immediate and critical needs. Today, Branches' menu of services provides a continuum of support to community members to empower them to pursue life changing opportunities.
It was a smooth experience. Everyone was so generous and kind. We enjoyed helping our community and teaching our little daughter about helping others, sharing food and about gratitude.
hope to do again this year!
I was very happy with the diverse group of people who came together to help out. Everybody was friendly and had one collective goal which was deliver meals to people who needed the most on Thanksgiving day. For me it was a rewarding experience to see the happiness on the people receiving the meals, it truly warmed my heart. I will do it again next year! Thank you Branches for the amazing work you are doing and for the opportunity i had to volunteer. Til next year!! :)
