Local Outreach

For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.
Matthew 25:35-36

Local Outreach Partners

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) is a non-denominational Christian organization. You do not need to be a churchgoer or from a specific denomination to join MOPS. We welcome women from all faith and non-faith backgrounds and beliefs. The vision of MOPS is to see no mom alone. After all, we mother better together and better moms make a better world!

We’ve all been placed in this time and place in history as the tribe of women who are raising the world. Our hope is that you will find encouragement, support, relevant teaching, and friendship with other women who are in your same season of life. We are confident that as you become more involved in our group, you will be better equipped to face the challenges that come with motherhood.

Echo Glen
Echo Glen is a Washington State Juvenile Detention facility and a school run by the Issaquah School District. There are 160 to 185 great kids between the ages of 9 and 19. Most have been neglected or abused by parent(s) who may have also been neglected & abused. It seems to be a continuous cycle — one that Echo Glen staff is determined to break. Many of the parents have too many issues of their own to be able to give attention & love to their incarcerated children. These kids crave positive attention from adults and need good role models. Nearly all have dangerously low self-esteem.
