In addition, our United Methodist Women focus on missions within the state of California and Hawaii. Current missions are the following:
David and Margaret Home – Located in Laverne California, the David & Margaret Youth and Family Services offers a wide variety of programs that benefit not only at-risk adolescent girls, but also provides co-ed programs for transitional age youth with workforce training and transitional housing to nurture successful progression into a self-reliant adult life.
Neighborhood House – Located in Calexico, California, the Neighborhood House of Calexico, Inc. is an agency that serves people in need in the Imperial Valley, with special concern towards the needs of women and children. It provides a comprehensive array of direct services in the areas of child day care for working parents, case management, parent education, shelter for homeless women and children, emergency food and utility assistance, micro business support, advocacy and English classes.
Toberman Neighborhood Center – Located in San Pedro, California, the Toberman Neighborhood Center is a non-profit community-based organization committed to assisting Harbor Area families and individuals by delivering life-changing services that encourage, inform, educate and empower them to live healthy and purposeful lives. We focus on family services, because in our neighborhood, 94% of the youth are in households with extremely low family incomes, 23% have immediate family members who are gang affiliated and 31% are performing poorly in school. Our Goal: Improving the quality of life for families in our community.
Susannah Wesley Community Center – Located in Honolulu, Hawaii, w are a comprehensive social services organization dedicated to helping and empowering youths, adults and families (many of whom are newcomers to Hawaii) who have great social and economic challenges, move towards self-sufficiency and independence. As a gathering place, Susannah Wesley Community Center allows constituents to develop skills and to interact in a safe and welcoming environment. As a social service agency, we provides information, networking, and programs that empower individuals and families to develop to their fullest potential. As an advocate, we champions the rights of individuals and families.
