Meals for Families in Need

There are times in our lives when we could use a little help with everyday needs, like when there is a new baby in the home, or a family member is ill, or there has been a death in the family. This ministry provides meals to those in need, sometimes for weeks at a time. We have heard from recent recipients of just how important this ministry is.

Homeless Shelter Meals

Churches in Marin supply all the meals for the Mill Street Homeless Shelter in San Rafael. Multiple Hillside teams rotate schedules to provide the meals on most Tuesdays. Each Hillside team supplies meals approximately five times a year. Each member prepares one part of the meal and delivers it to the shelter. This is an ongoing ministry. If you would like to know more about what is required, or join a team, call Steve Pridemore at 415.924.2297 x105.

Gilead House

Gilead House provides a respite in the chaotic lives of the moms and children who come there to work towards realizing life changing goals. Hillside Church of Marin is among many churches providing support and volunteers to Gilead House. Family Ministry at Hillside has taken responsibility for providing a “Welcome Basket” to new moms and their families as they arrive at Gilead House. Items in basket are the everyday items like new towel sets for each family member, personal care items, and some special gifts for the children (DVD, game, puzzle).
