Agency - Matthew 25 Ministry Hub

Agency Details:

Matthew 25 Ministry Hub
Last updated on April 30, 2013


The mission of the Matthew 25 Ministry Hub is "Unite, Empower, Change Lives!" Our theme this year is "Believe, Act, Transform" -- we believe in our neighbors and in the power of community. When we act together lives, and neighborhoods, are transformed.

Matthew 25 has 3 areas of service:

  • Neighborhood Building, which includes rehabbing flooded houses & building new homes to repopulate the neighborhood
  • Cultivate Hope, which includes Iowa's first Urban Farm and educational School Gardens
  • Youth Empowerment, which includes programs like Book Buddies, as well as our youth gathering space called Groundswell

  • History:
    Matthew 25 was founded to help meet the needs of the communities of the Taylor and Time Check neighborhoods. Following the flood of 2008, Matthew 25 was a partner in Block by Block, which brought volunteers and resources to the community to rehab 25 blocks and about 270 homes. Now our Urban Farm is being created where houses cannot be rebuilt.
