A Letter From our Executive Director
Dear MJM Family,
Let’s ponder two facts for a moment. On March 11, 2020 COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization. Exactly 16 days later, the US Congress passed the CARES Act which literally provided 3 trillion dollars into the economy for the welfare and salvation of US citizens.
Immediately my thought was if our nation can join together to meet the need of the normal John and Jane Doe in an emergency, why can’t we, in a similar way, band together and meet the needs of the vulnerable special needs population. The sad fact is there were over 14,000 individuals with I/DD in North Carolina on an average 5 year long waitlist to receive governmental support for programs and services before the pandemic, and there will be over 14,000 individuals on the waitlist after the pandemic has passed.
Mount Jubilee Ministries has a simple mission. We exist to bridge the gap in services for the special needs community. Because of friends and family like you, MJM is making a difference. For over 15 years, we have been enriching the lives of our special friends through Christ centered summer camps, day programs, social activities and seminars on critical information for parents and caregivers. And this is just the beginning!
Please accept our deepest gratitude for your support, prayers and encouragement as we press forward to meet this critical need.
