During Bible Camp, our mission’s emphasis was on the Northside Compassion Project in Knightdale, NC. They provide neighbor care through transitional housing and basic need provisions. Through our Compassion Homes, Compassion Box, and partnerships, they love their neighbors where they are in Eastern Wake County.
Rachel Barnes, the Executive Director of Northside Compassion Project, has a special connection with us, because she was Able to Serve’s Executive Director from 2007-2009. Rachel has a passion for this ministry, and she participated with us during Bible Camp and taught us about what the Compassion Box is all about. During the week, our participants & families brought in tons of hygiene items, participants made soap from scratch. Then they sorted and labeled the items to be distributed through the Compassion Box.
