Beth El Center is the primary outreach organization of the churches of Milford for the care of the hungry and the homeless in Milford and it is an important part of our Church's mission in the community. Their vision is to create a community where everyone is home and all are fed!
Beth-El Center is a 501c3, nonprofit organization that has two programs: a 34 bed homeless shelter and a food service program.
As one of the founding churches of Beth El and currently a sponsoring faith community, First Church supports the shelter financially and in other ways. In each month with five Saturdays, several members of our church gather at Beth El on that fifth Saturday to cook and serve lunch to dozens of people. This effort has evolved with the needs presented during the pandemic. We are so grateful for the adaptive work of the Center and volunteers over the past 20 months.
First Church is a sponsor of the Beth El Shelter Gala & other events sponsored in person and online.
Beth El Center is a wonderful example of what communities of faith working together can accomplish.
