Cares Ministries has been helping people in crisis since 1980 and has
been incorporated since 1983. For over thirty years, we provided a
safe place for troubled teens, many of whom had been physically and
sexually abused. We offered a live-in program, as well as counseling,
referrals, and an outreach to family members of our residents. From
1997- 2008 Jesus Cares Ministries Men's Program serviced those
struggling with homelessness due to the bondage of addiction cycles. We
witnessed firsthand how various unresolved abuse and trauma issues
experienced in the past can significantly impact the future stability
of individuals, therefore impacting the family dynamic.

which provides counsel, seminars, and support for couples and
individuals struggling with life dominating cycles. We have developed
our own curriculum, as well as utilized the resources of other
ministries to make available the best possible Christ-centered tools
for mending hearts and lives. As we pour oil and wine into the wounds
of the broken, we strive to fulfill Christ's example to love after the
pattern of the Good Samaritan.

the community in practical and spiritual ways, we proclaim the
