Our Mission

North End Community Ministry is a shared ministry whose mission is to provide practical assistance to those in need on the Northeast side of Grand Rapids.

North End Community Ministry was founded in 1971 with a primary focus of providing youth outreach programs. The shift from youth to food related ministries in the early years came as a result of impending need. Today, in lieu of food offerings, NECM's 2 'Client Choice Food Pantries serve over 750 families per month with food, and our NE Supper House Program serve over 350 individuals per week with a delicious, hot meal. Our Holiday Basket Food Program screens and coordinates baskets for over 1000 families. We also provide a specialty pantry for clients with diabetes and cardiovascular disease through our partnership with Spectrum Health, Healthier Communities and Access of West Michigan. Exercise and educational classes on cooking and parenting are a key component as well, equipping clients with necessary skills to more effectively manage their resources. Celebrate Back To School providing brand new clothing and school supplies for over 500 children and baby layettes for newborns, in addition to many referrals for other services in the community round out our services enabling a better quality of life for those we serve!
