Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Mission Statement Parker Street Ministries, Inc, is a Christ-centered nonprofit 501c3 organization committed to individual, family and community restoration, reconciliation and revitalization beginning in Lakeland's Parker Street Community.
We passionately believe the Christian community development work of Parker Street Ministries is vital to our neighborhood and to the future of Lakeland. Without our efforts and collaborations with other organizations, the crime characteristic of at-risk neighborhoods proliferates, significant learning gaps widen in students, sub-standard housing continues, and the effects of isolation, with its corresponding hopelessness, is unaddressed.
Parker Street Ministries...
Characterized foremost by staff who live in the neighborhood providing holistic, on-the-ground approaches to Christian community development.
Has served neighborhood since 1996.
Governed by an independent board of trustees.
Our Long-Range Goals and Strategies:
Partner with us in our mission to transform the Parker Street neighborhood. Join us through volunteer groups; and pray for our staff, ministry, and families.
We look forward to partnering with you as we join in God’s transformation of our neighborhood.
