Ministry on the Margins is a volunteer-based ecumenical ministry committed to supporting those who fall through the cracks during times of transition. Programs are being developed by listening to people on the margins and seeking to help them become self-sustaining. Ministry on the Margins supports people with basic needs for food, gas vouchers, and household items. It serves to provide dignity to people as they try to get back on their feet.​​
