Programs & Services
New Beginnings Package
Jeremiah's Letter offers a package of household items for individuals and families that have recently obtained housing. When moving into a new home, often there is a need for basic essentials. Our packages include sheets, blankets, plates, cups, silverware and cooking utensils. (subject to availability)
Emergency Food Pantry
With a caseworker or agency referral, individuals or families may pick up a box of food that will feed them for several days. The pantry was not designed to be a long-term sustainable resource to the community, but rather address the immediate crisis with the aid of food, so energies can be focused on seeking self-sufficiency.
Individuals seeking help obtaining vital documents find comfort in this program. Passages assists people in getting birth certificates and/or state ID's through direct service and vouchers. The short application process includes verifying the last 4 digits of the applicants social security number to help us track individuals who have benefited from our services, and a waiting period of 10-14 days for the application to be processed for local birth certificates.
Out of state birth certificates require a longer waiting period of usually 6 to 8 weeks, depending on individual states and requirements. We also assist in obtaining these documents for those born outside of the USA. Men, women and children are aided for the purposes of housing, employment, essential social services and entry into public schools.
Project Blessing Ministry
In continuing the tradition of Project Blessing lunch program/ministry of St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church, Jeremiah's Letter serves lunch on the last Thursday of each month at St. Paul UMC, 101 Huffman Ave; Dayton, OH. Through the efforts or our volunteers and donors, it is truly a blessing to provide this service to the community.
Individual prayer is offered to those seeking the affirmation and reassurance that only faith can provide.
