Nocona Ministries serves the physical, financial, emotional educational, social and spiritual needs of Northern Montague County. Efforts are focused on four basic programs–A Hand Up Food Ministry & Mercantile, Christmas Toys, and School Supplies.
A Hand Up
In Montague County, nearly 18% of people live in food insecure homes. 28% of the area’s children live in those homes.
A Hand Up food ministry and mercantile works to eliminate hunger in the community and to provide for basic needs. We are neighbors helping neighbors in their time of need by offering food, clothing, educational tools, employment opportunities, and help locating a church home. Most of all, we offer friendship and encouragement to create essential bonds within the community.
No family should feel the pressure to choose between school supplies and putting food on the table. Without school supplies, students cannot be expected to participate and learn in class. Nocona Ministries partners with the community to provide school supplies, some new clothing, backpacks, haircuts, and hearing and vision exams.
