North Way Missions & Outreach
North Way’s outreach focuses on partnering with churches and established organizations to aid in the desperate state of disenfranchised, abandoned, and orphaned children locally, nationally, and globally. We believe that transformation can happen by delivering practical resources to meet needs and developing and implementing long term solutions. We believe that the local church is a vital part of this mission and endeavor to partner with and establish churches that influence and develop indigenous leaders to carry out lasting and growing movements.

Open Hand Ministries Monthly Serving Opportunity
* Open Hand Ministries (OHM) renovates homes in East Liberty and Garfield to prepare them for ownership by disadvantaged families who live in those neighborhoods and participate in OHM's family care program. They also partner with community organizations to complete “community care” home repair projects for East Liberty and Garfield residents. On the first Saturday of each month, and every Wednesday, OHM has a “work day” where volunteers work on these home renovation, repair and clean-up projects along with skilled contractors and members of OHM's leadership. Activities on work days may include various cleaning, demolition and construction tasks. Construction and/or renovation experience is appreciated but in no way required - volunteers of all skill levels are welcome! Contact Jodi Salant
