Learn about a Ministry Model that Pairs Charity with Job Training and Creation
May 6-7, 2015 Detroit, MI
Cass United Methodist Church had a long tradition of social outreach and since the creation of nonprofit Cass Community Social Services in 2002, the work has expanded greatly.
Charity - including a million meals served annually - has been paired with job training and creation. For example, the ministry's Green Industries program employs 85 people in such recycling innovations as making mud mats and sandals from old tires. Exercise bikes are rigged to generate electricity for those industries. The ministry has put people to work making coaster sets and trained others through a culinary arts program.
