The basic needs of food, clothing, safety and shelter are not so easily found by those that are challenged by limited opportunities. Filling these basic needs of the under resourced is the mission of Ebenezer Stone ministries.
Ebenezer Stone Ministries was formed as a 501(c)3 organization in 2013 to help fill those basic needs primarily in the neighborhood surrounding what was Ebenezer Lutheran Church at 35th and Scott in Milwaukee, WI. The beginnings of this work began in 1991 as a local food pantry and grew with volunteer help from Hales Corners Lutheran Church. The offerings expanded over the last 20 years to include a full food pantry, hot meals, clothing, household needs, furniture, medical screening and homeless outreach.
We now include educational services such as tutoring and English as a Second Language, financial planning, job training, youth Basketball and a food distribution network to supply smaller pantries with connected food surpluses. Ebenezer Stone Ministries is a financially separate, yet supporting organization to Hales Corners Lutheran Church. As such, we work in agreement to and are connected by the Hales Corners Lutheran Church vision and mission.
