West End Ministries' Community Center is the hub of the many programs and services we offer to the community. From the youngest child to our honored senior adults, there is always something exciting happening in the WEM Community Center. Below are a few of the many programs and services offered.
Boys & Girls Club
The West End Ministries' Boys and Girls Club is an official site of the Boys and Girls Club of Greater High Point, Inc., the Positive Place for Kids. Our club is open Monday through Friday from 2:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. during the school year and all day during the summer and school holidays. Children, ranging in age from 5-15 enjoy free time, homework, a nutritious dinner and a variety of community building activities.
The Emergency Assistance Program was created to help people with economic emergencies. The program provides eligible households with supplemental rental/mortgage assistance to prevent eviction and provides supplemental utility assistance to prevent disconnection of vital water, electricity and gas. Assistance is provided by appointment only. For further information regarding emergency assistance, please call (336) 884-1105.
At West End Ministries, we are committed to serving the community through the Food Ministry. The Community Meal is a hot meal served weekly on Thursday at 5:00 PM. Neighbors can also receive boxes of canned food and other food items that is equivalent to a week’s worth of groceries from the food pantry every Thursday afternoon between 2:00-4:00 p.m. or in emergency situations. Please bring a photo ID and a bill with your current address on it. Many of our friends and neighbors rely heavily on the Food Ministry each week and this could not be accomplished without the generosity of time, food and financial resources from the High Point community.
West End Ministries recognizes that there is a thriving population of senior adult citizens in the West End neighborhood. By providing Senior programs, neighbors are still able to be involved and active in the community around them. Senior adult programs are open to anyone 60 or older and either lives, works or worships in the West End area. We meet twice a month. Other activities include Bingo on the fourth Tuesday of each month a 1:00 PM, musical entertainment, movies and trips. Of course, there is always food so please join us.
