Supporting our Partners – Sheffield Place

Lara Schopp Metro Service, Serve, Serve Our Church

This week the church sent a virtual hug of appreciation and support to one of our mission partners, Sheffield Place, by sponsoring a meal for 44 residents and staff. Sheffield Place, located in northeast Kansas City, has faced unique challenges during the stay-at-home order, with many families with children in residence sheltering in place, and staff working to support them each day. Sheffield Place empowers homeless mothers and their children to heal from traumas such as domestic violence and addiction, working to move them into self-sufficiency. The meal was catered by church member Bonnie Hensley’s Expressive Catering.
