In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which, when translated, is Dorcas), who was always doing good and helping the poor. ~Acts 9:36

Our Story

El Shaddai helps the poor and needy in our city by reaching out to meet their physical and spiritual needs.

On the 2nd Saturday from 2-4 P.M. and 4th Sunday from 1-3 P.M. of every month, the Dorcas Program opens its doors to the community for free clothing. We see this as part of the Torah and Brit Chadashah mandate to care for the stranger, widow, and poor in our cities.

Our Story

The Central American Relief Project began in September 2002, in cooperation with the pastors of Cristo Centro Congregations in San Salvador and Sonsonate, El Salvador.

The sponsorship program drives the project and pays for the children’s registration at the beginning of the school year in January and a monthly tuition fee. In addition, funds pay for school supplies. Parents pay for regular and sports uniforms, if they are not covered by the government, and books. Unlike the U.S., book companies sell new books for profit in the schools.

Each child in the project receives a monthly canasta básica “basic basket” or food staples. This package consists of beans, rice, sugar, milk, noodles, soup stock mix, cooking oil, and soap. The pastor buys everything in bulk, and congregational members measure and pack it for distribution to each family.
