Walk of Faith Community Center (WOFCC) Mission and Purpose:
As specified in the Charter from the State of Ohio, the mission of this organization is making a difference in the Cleveland area by providing families and individuals with resources and services enhancing the quality of life. The general purpose of this agency is to function as a charitable organization under the applicable laws to deliver social services, mobilize the involvement of volunteers, raise funds and encourage community action to deal with contemporary social problems. It is organized exclusively for charitable, religious, educational, and/or scientific purposes under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service.
Walk of Faith Community Center (WOFCC) is a public charity (501c3) organization located on the Westside of Cleveland, Ohio. We currently offer four services to the community. (1) A donation center that provides basic necessities for families in crisis or families transitioning from homelessness. Hannah’s Socks, a national nonprofit featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, has designated our agency as its affiliate for the Cleveland area and this has expanded our donation area to include new socks and underwear for distribution, as well as support homeless shelters and other program throughout the community. In January of 2011 we partnered with Soles 4 Soles, an organization that collects and distributes shoes worldwide. They have chosen WOFCC as a distribution center in the Cleveland area.(2) Teen Esteem, a youth drop in center, which provides a safe place where youth can interact with each other and responsible adults, play games, get homework assistance, participate in adult-led discussion groups, be mentored and receive healthy snacks and meals. We recently partnered with A+ With Us Tutoring, an organization that receives funding from the No Child Left Behind Campaign to provide tutoring for local teens. (3) A family life education program which offers marriage enrichment, stop smoking classes and family finance classes to the community throughout the year. (4) A food pantry which is operated in affiliation with the Cleveland Regional Food Bank to provide families with an emergency supply of non-perishable food items that will feed the family for 3 to 5 days. In late 2010 we added a hot meals program. We now serve breakfast to the homeless and unemployed five mornings a week and a lunch every Saturday.
