The Branches Center of Rio Grande
In 2008, St. Mary's, Stone Harbor, and
St. Barnabas, Villas, Episcopal Churches, created a faith-based mission for an underserved but growing part of the County. While the intent was to provide study and worship at that site, we began to attract a number of people in need from the surrounding community and so the mission pivoted to address their lack of necessities.
The Branches Center works with churches and organizations throughout the County to provide for the daily needs of our guests.
What is The Branches?
The Branches Center of Rio Grande is a multiple activity outreach center providing a safe, positive environment for the elderly, disabled, homeless, and marginalized individuals and families. Surrounded by caring volunteers, our guests are offered meals, clothing, counsel, comfort and compassion.
