Compassionate Ministries of Jackson County (CMJackson) is a faith-based ministry serving the greater Jackson County area since 2012. We are aware of the difficulties this world can bring. Life can bring unemployment, sickness, family and financial stresses; some brought on by the choices we make, others not foreseen, unpredicted. CMJackson is passionate about meeting the immediate needs of those in our community. We also are passionate about helping others with long term solutions to life’s adversities.
Through the building of relationships with those we serve, our hope is to assist families and individuals in becoming self sufficient. We understand this takes a community of people, serving together, building a better Jackson!

Our desire and hope is that we meet the many needs of families and individuals in the greater Jackson community. Additionally, our community outreach ministries provides opportunities for relationships to be built. Relationships built upon conversations of listening to our neighbors who communicate their needs, and not us identifying the needs we perceive they may have.
We recognize that poverty in Jackson is real. Recent data shows that 30% of our children live in poverty, which is a 47% increase in six years. In the past five years, God has provided the resources for our Hunger ministries to provide food to 32,000 families equating to nearly 450 tons of food! Our food ministries assist our community in a variety of ways at different times throughout year. It takes hundreds of volunteers throughout Jackson County to assist in our efforts to make sure no one goes hungry in our community.
CMJackson is here to share God’s love with people who have intellectual and physical disabilities. David’s Promise, our special needs ministry, provides an inclusive atmosphere where people with and without special needs grow in faith, make friends, serve our community, and share life with one another.
