West Side Ministries

West Side Ministries’ (WSM) hope is to bring at-risk urban children and their families the Gospel, wider opportunities and new options.

We are a community that offers hope and help to those in need while opening our own hearts to learn from our neighbors and accept their gifts. Together we will create a place of refuge as part of God’s family.

We are committed to building strong, consistent and caring relationships between volunteers and neighborhood youth. Our hope is to live, learn and teach in rhythm with the heartbeat of God.

Our programs include Street Church (a mentor/discipleship based after-school Bible Club), Whiz Kids Tutoring (one-on-one literacy help) and Summer JAM (themed summer clubs). Please click below to find out about each ministry:
