Mission Statement

Dorcas Ministries’ mission is to provide residents of its designated service area emergency assistance for their essential human needs, including shelter, clothing, food, fuel, transportation and medical care. This care is enhanced with childcare and educational assistance scholarships.

Description

Dorcas Ministries has been serving southwestern Wake County for over 40 years. We operate the Dorcas Thrift Shop which supplies 80% of our funds. We sell only items donated by the public in our thrift shop. Proceeds from the Thrift Shop along with private and corporate financial donations are used to fund our Crisis Ministry. Our Crisis Ministry provides assistance by operating a food pantry, providing financial assistance for mortage, rent, utility bills and prescription medicines, and other life essentials to residents who are eligible. We also loan medical equipment, provide clothing for school or work, and scholarships for adult education assistance and childcare assistance. Grants are given to loacl nonprofits whose missions complement those of Dorcas Ministries.
