We exist as a mosaic of congregations and organizations serving together in the Highland neighborhood to develop resources, tools, and existing neighborhood assets for the people of Highland. Our goal is to provide a sustainable program of community services at the Highland Center for the working poor of Highland as a means of mitigating poverty and providing hope for their future and for that of the Highland neighborhood.

Highland Center Ministries is a diverse network of churches and organizations working together at the Highland Center for the working poor of Highland. It began in 2013 as a result of the collaborative success of churches and organizations that developed a meal in 2011 (Highland Blessing Dinner) to meet the hunger needs of the working poor population in the Highland neighborhood. We began feeding 24 people and currently serve 100-125 every Thursday night. The synergistic effect of these churches and organizations working together combined with the awareness of needs from dining with the local population led to the development of additional ministries, like the free tax preparation program, first time homebuyers program, and clothing closets for toddlers, children, women, and men.
We love to give tours and answer questions, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
