About Shelter Rock Ministries
Shelter Rock meets the needs of the Appalachian Mountain impoverished with the giving love of Jesus Christ. The organization is a 501c3 non-profit, inter-denominational Christian ministry dedicated to identifying the poor of Appalachia and providing them with immediate relief.
Shelter Rock Relief Teams minister with provisional relief to not only help save lives but also lead men, women, and children to new life in Jesus Christ.
Our Mission Statement:
Shelter Rock endeavors to bring hope and fullness of life to those living in crushing poverty. We seek to not only save lives but also lead men, women, and children to new life in Jesus Christ. We seek to facilitate eternal change for Americans peering through the windows of inhumane shelter.
Most Americans do not realize that within remote Appalachian Mountain areas of North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and Kentucky, there are families that live in conditions that parallel that of the world's poorest developing nations.
Shelter Rock field teams facilitate for many families that still live on dirt floors. Frequently, they don't have plumbing and live a life of amazing contrast with that of others in the richest nation on earth. The children have inadequate clothing for the climate and the higher elevations subject the poor to the extreme cold of the Appalachian winters. Malnutrition is rampant and evident through the outward expression of dental decay and debilitating spinal and arthritic conditions at an early age.
Shelter Rock depends totally on the financial support of those who partner with us. Our partners are people who have seized an opportunity to be involved in God's work.
Above all, we hope you will pray for the projects and needs mentioned.
