The mission and purpose of Straight Street is to provide a positive Christian environment where at-risk* youth can go and obtain the necessary skills and training needed to mature and to discover God’s Divine plan for their lives.
In the “Last Mile of Need” are individuals and families who have unmet needs, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual. The local church has a unique ability to reach those in the “Last Mile of Need” because they are in close relationship to and understand the specific needs of their community.
Reaching more people in your community requires a growing team, additional resources and a more effective strategy to meet people where they are. Our collaborative network helps churches scale up for greater impact.
Jesus met needs and redeemed lives, both were important to Him and the church is called to do the same. We supply churches with tangible items like food, furniture, apparel and household necessities. Churches are resourced to fulfill their purpose and meet the needs of their community.
We help churches discover new ways to reach those who are hurting in their neighborhoods and around the world. The 10 CityServe Initiatives address broad categories of community engagement based on God’s biblical template.
Your generosity makes our work possible. Whether you contribute financially or as an advocate for good.
Your church can help us reach the hearts of kids in Roanoke by serving them,
