North Fulton Community Charities
North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) is a local charity that provides financial assistance, food, and clothing to those in need. St. David’s provides financial assistance as well as volunteers to serve in the food pantry and thrift shop. We also participate in several other programs during the year, such as the Warm Coat drive, School Supplies Drive, and Frozen Turkey donations.
Amistad Mission (Bolivia)
This ministry works to contribute funds to help support the mission – an orphanage (Villa Amistad) and agricultural assistance for rural villagers in Aramasi’, Bolivia.
The Drake House provides short-term crisis housing, education and empowerment programs for homeless mothers and their children in North Fulton County designed to assist the family in working toward self-sufficiency.
St. David’s provides financial support to one family per year. Homestretch has a family support team (financial advisor, mentor, job coach) to help the adult clients.
Path To Shine
This is a ministry from our Diocese that inspires under-served children to achieve hope-filled dreams. They meet here at St. David's weekly, on Wednesday afternoons, with most children from Mimosa Elementary School next door to our church.
Six Mercies Ministry
During this very difficult time we are all experiencing, there has been an increase for those in need. We had to close Six Mercies during the pandemic but have worked out a way to re-open by conducting our work by telephone so that we can Social Distance with our clients.
Six Mercies is a St. David's community outreach ministry which has served our neighbors for 9 years. We would like to involve as many Parishioners as possible in this meaningful ministry.
The Six Mercies Ministry is staffed in pairs and is at the church Mondays from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. We are starting back with a limited schedule and will not be open on Fridays as we were previously. Parishioners sign up each month for a 2-hour shift and we have very flexible scheduling. If you can only work for one hour, that is fine. If someone needing assistance comes outside of that time period and clergy is not present, we will, at the very least, give them a time to return. We can offer Kroger Cards and Marta Breeze passes if needed. We also offer snack kits and toiletry kits.
If you would like to hear more about volunteering and the protocol we have put in place, please contact Jan Georges.
