C.A.R.E. Program

Lady with CartFor women living in poverty conditions, with children who need to be fed and clothed, life can be very difficult. For these women, Sunshine Ministries offers help through the C.A.R.E. Program.

This program is designed to create a supportive community that provides assistance to impoverished women while teaching personal responsibility and offering encouragement to fulfill their God-given potential.

C = Creating Community

The events offered through the C.A.R.E. program provide opportunities for the Sunshine staff to build trusting relationships with the ladies as well as to encourage them to build supportive relationships with each other.

A = Providing Assistance

Each month the ladies receive food to help feed their families. They are also able to “shop” in our Community Closet for toiletries, clothing and household goods.

R = Teaching Responsibility

To participate in the C.A.R.E. Program and receive any assistance, each lady is required to attend all meetings, arrive on time and comply with all of the policies that we have established to ensure the items they receive from us are used for their own benefit.

E = Offering Encouragement

Every meeting of the C.A.R.E. Program offers a “sharing time” in which encouraging messages of God’s love and practical life skills are offered to equip them for life’s challenges.
