Identity & Mission Partners for 2015
Made up of individuals and approximately 1,900 affiliated churches, the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship is an organization that serves a larger renewal movement among Baptists. We are committed to discovering and providing resources that will empower churches to fulfill their mission in their particular context and will equip individuals to fulfill their calling under the Lordship of Christ.
We value fellowship and the many ways it brings us together. By Serving Others we are actively engaged in ministries around the state, nation and world. By Church Planting we launch new churches, Anglo and ethnic, to meet the needs of "those not here yet."
The Institute for Dismantling Racism is a community organization dedicated to the elimination of institutional racism and all other forms of oppression. Our deliberate process is grounded on intentional community building through education, organizing and the establishment of institutional teams.

The Salvation Army offers programs designed to elevate the moral, physical, spiritual, and social aspects of an individual's life. We provide help to those who need it most, regardless of color, creed, religion or orientation. But every hungry soul fed, every homeless soul sheltered and every needy child comforted is done so because of a conviction to take the love of Jesus to "the least of these."
"I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. . . I was a stranger and you invited me in. . ." Matthew 25:35. An interdenominational Christian ministry providing hope and healing by providing hot nutritional meal, year-round night shelter for homeless men, companionship with the hungry and homeless through Christian love and service.
Every day at The Shalom Project we see mothers and fathers struggling to find food, clothing and medical services for their families. We are a Winston Salem charity that feeds the hungry, offers clothing to those in need, tutors at risk children and cares for the sick. The Shalom Project runs one of the largest food pantries and free medical clinics in Winston Salem. “Each week we provide over 1,450 meals – fill 100 prescriptions – see over 70 patients – provide emergency clothing for 200 - bring 125 meals to the homeless – plus offer an afterschool enrichment program to 35 at-risk youth.” We are a volunteer driven organization with over 100 dedicated volunteers who have chosen to make a difference in their community each week. Without them we wouldn’t exist - We are The Shalom Project.

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
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”.

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.
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
