CROP Hunger Walk (Church World Service)

The purpose of CROP Hunger Walk is to raise money to fight hunger locally and globally.  CROP Hunger Walk began in 1946 when farmers came together to share their crops with people in Europe who were suffering the devastation from World War II.  The first CROP Hunger Walk in Winston-Salem was held in 1979, and has been held annually, raising over $1 million to fight hunger.  For over 30 years, the CROP Hunger Walk has brought people of different faith communities, cultures and ages together to show their support for the poor, victims of famine, war and disease.  CROP Hunger Walk donations are shared with 75% going to Church World Service, one of the most effective and efficient international service agencies in the world, and 25% going to Crisis Control Ministry and Sunnyside Ministry to support their hunger alleviation programs in Forsyth County.  Since 1979, over $250,000 has stayed in our community to help our neighbors in need.

 The Enrichment Center

In 1983, a group of parents realized a need for programming following high school for their children with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. They wanted an experience similar to that of their typical children who were going to college. With this thought, The Enrichment Center opened as an arts –oriented day program and became incorporated in 1984. The program began with only 3 students, and some very determined parents. Today, we serve over 400 individuals!

The Enrichment Center started in a small location off Bethania Station Road, utilizing only two Quonset huts. Then moved to the Hanes Community Building on Coliseum Drive. The Enrichment Center experienced much growth since 1984. To meet our growing needs, a capital campaign was launched in 1998 to raise funds to purchase the Jones Bakery located at 1006 S. Marshall Street as our new facility. 


Affiliations with funders were as important in the early days, as it is today. The Enrichment Center became a funded partner of United Way in 1987, Forsyth Technical Community College in 1993, and Vocational Rehabilitation in 1995. Center Point Human Services has always been an important part of our growth. The Enrichment Center remains very grateful to donors of all sizes who help to grow our mission. “Empowering individuals with disabilities: growth, dignity, choice”.

HorizonsResidential Care Center 

Horizons provides comprehensive interdisciplinary services for persons with developmental disabilities.  Situated on a spacious and scenic campus, Horizons offers both inside and outside facilities for physical activities including a gymnasium and a specialized playground.

Serving hungry, homeless and people in need, 365 days a year, our programs include: Samaritan Soup Kitchen, Winston-Salem’s only soup kitchen; Samaritan Inn, a 69 bed homeless shelter for men; Project Cornerstone, a residential substance abuse recovery program for men.

Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child (Christmas)

The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God's desire for us to help those in desperate need wherever we find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, "Go and do likewise."  For over 40 years, Samaritan's Purse has done our utmost to follow Christ's command by going to the aid of the world's poor, sick, and suffering. We are an effective means of reaching hurting people in countries around the world with food, medicine, and other assistance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This, in turn, earns us a hearing for the Gospel, the Good News of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

Christmas Gift Tree (Salvation Army—Christmas)

Each Christmas, The Salvation Army, with the help of hundreds of volunteers and donors, provides toys, food and clothing for our neighbors in need, and cares for those otherwise forgotten.  In 2011, we served more than 17,200 people in need in the greater Winston-Salem area. Of those served, more than 7,000 were children.  Together you donated 2,600 Angel Tree gifts, filled nearly 3,000 stockings and collected more than 700,000 cans of food. With your help, we distributed more than 20,000 toys, 4,400 coats and close to 3,300 food boxes. More than 4,100 presents were delivered to local facilities such as nursing homes, remembering those who may have otherwise been forgotten.  Some 338 volunteers gave over 3,000 hours of service to make Christmas brighter for those less fortunate.


Global Missions Partners

Marc and Kim Wyatt—Furniture Bank of Ottawa

The Furniture Bank of Ottawa originated in 2008 following an influx of Haitian refugees to the area. Since then it has grown in response to community need and today operates as a partner with many local social agencies.  Our Mission is to distribute quality used furniture and household goods to refugees; those transitioning from institutions, half-way houses, and shelters, along with others who have lost their possessions. In most instances, they have nothing when they arrive in Ottawa or move into their new housing. It isn’t just about furniture. It’s about children sleeping on a bed instead of a blanket on the floor. It’s about families sitting around a table talking and laughing while having a meal instead of holding their plates on their laps. It’s about helping families and newcomers, young and old, single moms and the working poor make their shelter a home. We help an average of 50 families a month – approximately 200 people, including 100 children.

Sam and Melody Harrell—Africa Exchange

Africa Exchange is . . .

a holistic endeavor in Christian mission in partnership with education, mission, and development organizations; to promote the exchange of resources across cultures; for the purpose of greater mutual understanding, appreciation and respect between Africans and other world citizens; resulting in mutual & participatory expressions of Christian compassion; to alleviate the plight of poor and marginalized communities in sub-Saharan Africa
