 MISSION FOR THE MIDLANDS

 

To increase the economic self-sufficiency of people experiencing poverty in the Midlands through crisis assistance and sustainability programs.

 OUR HISTORY

 

In 1982 The Cooperative Ministry was founded by five churches (First Presbyterian Church, Main Street Methodist, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, Washington Street United Methodist Church, and First Baptist Church) in downtown Columbia. Their goal was to establish a collaborative method of administering assistance to those in need, while also preventing duplication of services.

 

Since then TCM has grown to encompass congregations of all faiths, over 120 partnering agencies, and countless civic and social organizations, foundations, businesses and individuals. We believe in the honor of all work, we show individuals the respect they deserve.
