serving locally

We believe in taking care of our local neighbors.

These are a few of our priorities.

​​

holy trinity community servants

Our Holy Trinity Community Servants are a team of stewards who use their hands, feet – and hearts – to assist with home and yard projects for those in need.

the upper room

The Upper Room provides hot meals and compassion to the hungry in Placerville 7 days a week, 365 days a year. 

 

It is staffed and funded by volunteers and organizations throughout the community.  All volunteers are trained sufficiently so as to insure that safe wholesome meals are prepared in compliance with current industrially prepared foods and state of California laws.  Volunteers are also be trained to promote the dignity and self-esteem of all those who are served by the Upper Room.

share

SHARE -- Serving Hungry Area Residents in Emergencies -- shares the love of Christ by providing food to those in need, in emergency situations.  It is not the intention of SHARE to be the sole source of food for their clients but rather to supplement what they can provide for themselves.

SHARE's food closet is open Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 12:45 PM.  It is staffed by volunteers from member churches, including Holy Trinity.  Holy Trinity also provides food to SHARE, as well as financial support.

mother teresa maternity home

The Mother Teresa Maternity Home is a safe residence for pregnant women in need, a place where they can live during the time of their pregnancy and for three month after the birth of their child.

 

The home was established because members of the community recognized that there was no other similar home in all of El Dorado County as well as in the entire area east and north of Sacramento.  At the same time, they saw the need for such a safe place for homeless or abused women.

nomadic shelter

The Nomadic Shelter Ministry (NSM) is a multi-faith program that serves homeless people in El Dorado County. Members of Holy Trinity Parish, alongside those from other faith communities, help provide homeless guests with nourishing, home-cooked meals and a warm, safe place to sleep during the cold, winter months.

Guests are served a hearty evening meal and breakfast “to go” in the morning.  Warm, dry clothing, shoes, and hygiene items are also made available.  In addition to serving the physical needs of our guests, we seek to minister to the soul and spirit, and provide each individual with a sense of dignity, safety, and belonging.

 

“…For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.  … ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’  (Matthew 25:35-36, 40).

 

You can make a difference in the life of someone who is homeless.  You can be involved in this ministry by preparing a main course, side dish, bread, salad, dessert, drinks, fruit or lunch items.  We cook for about 40 guests.  We provide these meals twice a month (1st & 3rd  Mondays).

 

Volunteers are needed to donate, prepare and serve meals.
