Shepherd’s Staff @ Wesley Freedom

Wesley Freedom’s Hope Rising Resource Center serves as a Satellite Office of Shepherd’s Staff. We offer a variety of assistance, programs, and access to our Blessings Closet.

How Does It Work?

Carroll County residents can come to the Hope Rising office at Wesley Freedom UMC to visit the Blessings Closet and complete  initial intake and application procedures for Shepherd’s Staff.

Hygiene & Household Products

Once per month, Carroll County residents can receive household, hygiene, and personal care essentials at no cost through the Blessings Closet. This service is available Mondays, 10am-1pm.

Emergency Financial Aid Intake

Shepherd’s Staff provides Carroll County residents with emergency financial assistance for a variety of needs, including housing, utilities, and transportation. At our satellite office, we can assist in the initial intake and application for emergency aid.

Community Partner Network

If we can’t help you immediately, our staff can help you connect with other services and community agencies to help meet your needs!
