A Calling to Help Our Neighbors
We believe it is our duty and privilege to welcome our neighbors with open arms and support them in times of need. We believe in showing love, respect, and kindness toward all of God's creatures. We believe in sharing our blessings and wasting no opportunity to improve our community.
Prosser Jubilee Ministry was founded in 1986 as a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization. An executive director handles the daily operations, reporting to a 5-member executive board consisting primarily of pastors and/or church leaders of supporting churches.
Our mission is multi-faceted: To provide low cost household items and clothing; provide food and financial help in emergency situations, and to bring unity to the churches of Prosser.
Jubilee Ministries owns and operates a thrift store and food bank that are stocked and funded by church and community members alike. We depend on donations of secondhand items for our thrift store and the support of local businesses to fund and stock our food bank.
To date, our facilities are almost entirely staffed by volunteers. Through the generosity of their service, we have been able to keep our doors open these lasts 40 years. However, our hours for both the thrift store and food bank are very limited, which prevents us from continuing to grow and expand our mission. Jim Hopwood, a retired pastor, came on as director in January 2019 with the goal of increasing volunteer participation to the point that we will be able to add new programs and services in the near future.
