World Peace Ministries is a nonprofit organization that is committed to going beyond the four walls of the church into various communities to make a powerful and lasting impact. Our WIN is to get people off the streets, students to stay in school, and prisoners to not return to a life of incarceration once released.
There are many people living among us that are hurting so bad mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually that some feel as if they would be better off dead. In today’s era people often get labeled as “weak” if they reach out for help. In attempts to protect images amongst peer’s, people often try to mask hurts by not reaching or seeking the desired help that could enable them to a life with more peace. Some individuals are so isolated or downtrodden they don’t know where to even start a process to a happier, more productive life and lifestyle. While others have lived a lifestyle for so long they no longer see and recognize the negative impact their way of life has on themselves, the people that love them, and possibly the community.
WPM recognizes this dilemma people are in so we take it upon ourselves to reach out to them instead of waiting for them to come to us. WPM reaches out to people in three different settings. Those areas are:
1. People who find themselves in the Streets. These are people conducting illegal activity such as drugs, prostitution, gang involvement and etc. WPM reaches those whose homes are the streets with no place to lay their head and no food before them.
2. Those who have committed crimes such as murder, rape, drug sells, theft, and etc. who now find themselves serving a period of their life in Prison.
3. To students who are on the verge of dropping our or being kicked out their School institutions. WPM also encourages positive kids to continue their strides of honor achievements and futuristic planning.
