Programs & Services
Individuals seeking help securing vital documents may find comfort in this ministry. Though this program, men, women and children are aided for various purposes; such as obtaining housing, employment, essential social services and entry into public schools.
The Passages Ministry assists people in getting birth certificates and/or state ID's through direct service and limited use of vouchers. The short application process involves gathering some basic information, including verification of the last four numbers of an applicant's social security number and a waiting period of 10-14 days for receipt of local (Ohio) birth certificates. Once received, the birth certificate may be picked up at our office. Currently, this application process takes place in person, by telephone, email or through case worker referral.
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 records for those born outside of the USA, as permitted by the country of birth. This process requires a scheduled office appointment and may require supporting documentation.
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). A phone call, email or referral from a case worker begins the process.
Individual prayer is offered to those seeking the affirmation and reassurance that only faith can provide.
