The Blessing Box is a faith based nonprofit service organization that will inspire, nurture, and empower the human spirit by providing social services, charitable assistance, and emotional/spiritual support to individuals. We are compassion in action.
We are a faith based nonprofit organization that started due to our awareness of the many unknown and unrecognized needs of individuals. As a social worker who has worked with many different individuals that have experienced unexpected illness, tragedy or loss, it became clear that contending with challenging life events can be impossible. In the midst of sadness and suffering there are very few organizations that provide tangible, hands on help for everyday needs. The Blessing Box intends to bridge that gap through intentional acts of kindness.
A Different Nonprofit.
We believe that social workers, nurses, teachers, principals, pastors, and other community based individuals know the needs of the people and community they serve best. Referrals are received and generated through our trusted community partners. With their help we are able to reach those with unmet needs.
Compassion in Action
The Blessing Box is designed around extending compassion to our neighbor. Who is considered our neighbor? Our neighbors are people in our own backyards, those we serve and those we serve alongside in our jobs, neighborhoods, on the street and in all areas of community.We intend to show love for our neighbor. Our values are reflected in the story of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37.
We are a charity designed to bless the giver through service and the recipient through meeting core needs.The box is a vessel of hope to the person that receives it and inspires the person that gives it. This cycle of generosity is created when we inspire, nurture and empower the human spirit through compassion in action.
