Rural & Migrant Ministry

Trinity has several opportunities to participate with the Rural & Migrant Ministry as they provide day and overnight camps for the children of area migrant workers. These camps can be the experience of a lifetime for some 200 deserving children and youth. Day camp is held during designated weeks in July and area churches are invited to provide the ingredients for a full lunch for one day of camp during the session. The overnight camp is held for one week during the month of August at Camp Kutz in Warwick, New York.

House of Hope

The House of Hope shelter is part of the House of Faith Ministry, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of hurting women who have been victims of domestic violence. Directed by Minister Luader Smith, who lost a family member to abuse, the House provides a safe haven for victims and provides counseling, child care, transportation and support for court appearances, and a hot line for women in crisis.

Volunteers may find themselves shopping, cooking, cleaning, holding a baby while a mother cooks a meal, answering the hotline, issuing supplies to shelter residents, moving belongings, accompanying women to the Department of Social Services, running errands, doing clerical tasks, sorting donations, providing the local community with information and education on abuse, or providing socialization for mothers and their children.
