Open Arms Shelter

The United Methodist churches in the Marion county area have committed to supporting a new ministry based at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church. This ministry is providing a safe environment for a select group of homeless individuals that have started the process of re-entry into the workplace. Help is given in the form of housing meals and training to make it possible for their success.

Ocala West has committed to providing one meal per month on the first Wednesday of each month in addition to financially supporting the cause. It is hoped that various groups will step forward and contact the office to schedule one of the meals. Currently there are less than ten individuals that would require feeding. This is an opportunity for you and/or your group to make a difference in someone’s life.
