Faith in Action Since 1986
Good News Outreach envisions a world where all people have access to food, affordable housing, and companionship. As a faith-based organization, we strive to reduce recidivism, hunger, homelessness, and isolation through uplifting and collaborative efforts in the Big Bend region.
Helping children & families break the cycle of poverty
The challenges of raising children are numerous, even for those who have been blessed with supportive families and financial means. Imagine being a single parent with a very limited income and little to no support system; the challenges can be overwhelming.
The Chance for a new freedom
Helping men lead productive lives
Mercy House provides returning citizens with data-based research tested best practice and critically necessary resources as they begin their journey back into our community from incarceration and addiction.
Without these basic resources such as housing, food , clothing, transportation, addiction recovery support , mentoring , positive social interaction and spiritual guidance this transition is overwhelming.
We invite you to join hands us as we help these men build new lives and become productive citizens.
Although each senior client is unique, they do often share typical concerns. Many struggle financially; many have few or no friends or family who remain involved in their daily lives; and many languish on waiting lists for other social service programs. The hug, handshake, or phone call to say hello, along with an attentive ear, and compassionate smile offered by devoted volunteers goes a long way toward addressing the most pressing need that many have: social interaction and friendship
Helping seniors stay in their homes
Feeding our Neighbors
Good News Outreach partners with Second Harvest of the Big Bend, Publix, local churches, restaurants, school groups and private donors. This cooperative effort makes our food ministries possible. Their support has sustained the ministry throughout the global pandemic and allowed nearly 11,000 people to receive food during the first seven months of 2020.
