Major Care Ministries (MCM) is a non-profit organization in Cleveland, Ohio, incorporated in 2015. We established community Hot Meals, Senior Produce, and Free Clothes programs in partnership with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and other Community Partners. Through these programs, we established relationships in the community. We serve approximately 3000 individuals and families every 1st and 3rd Saturday. Recognizing that the needs of the community are not solely limited to providing food, MCM has continually endeavored to expand its services to meet those varied needs.
In 2017, Major Care Ministries developed our Concession Stand Project in partnership with the Cleveland Indians, Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Cleveland Browns. This program created the opportunity to develop work skills and self-esteem in our workforce of individuals, many of whom were in recovery programs in the area, through education, training, and income support. Our Programs produced reciprocity of support through community participation, while Major Care Ministries lent support to the community. In 2018, we added our Senior Program to our list of services. This program assists seniors with remaining independent in their homes. Through this program, seniors are provided free groceries with free delivery service, wellness checks, light home maintenance, and community referral service. In 2019 and throughout 2020 into 2021, MCM has incorporated serving hot lunches along with the food and clothes giveaway and bringing in musical entertainment for special events to foster relationships and providing toys for the children during the holiday season.
Major Care Ministries continues to look for and investigate meaningful community-based programs and events, drawing volunteers from neighboring communities with loving hearts and fresh ideas to expand our ranks and capacity to serve. It is the hope and the agenda of MCM to implement a youth tutoring and mentoring program to hopefully lessen the widening education disparity created by the pandemic and virtual learning.
Major Care Ministries is committed to providing the highest quality services to the individuals and families we serve. Every person in the organization, from the Executive Director to the newest member of our corporate family, will strive to adhere to the founding principles, which require every service is delivered with loving and concerned hearts.
