The Cooperative Ministry

The Cooperative Ministry is fighting poverty by working to increase the economic self-sufficiency of people in the Midlands through crisis assistance and sustainability programs.
In 1982 The Cooperative Ministry was founded by five congregations in downtown Columbia. Their goal was to establish a collaborative method of administering assistance to those in need, while also preventing duplication of services. Since then The Cooperative Ministry has grown to encompass congregations of all faiths, over 120 partnering agencies, and countless civic and social organizations, foundations, businesses and individuals.

We believe in the honor of all work, we show individuals the respect they deserve.
