Salvation Army Fresno Citadel Corps opened the Madera (Calif.) Family Service and Ministry Center at a new location March 20.
The service center will continue offering PG&E assistance, food, coats for kids, financial assistance for summer camps, and Bible studies for the Madera community. As of April 6, the ministry is holding Sunday morning services as well.
Madera Family Service and Ministry Center has been actively involved in ministering to the needs of the community at Madera South High School and County Juvenile Boot Camp, as well assisting members of the Madera Ministerial Association and Gang Prevention Task Force. The center has also helped with assessments for the Adult Rehabilitation Center at Madera County Jail, and partnered with local churches reaching out to the homeless.
