Wayside Cross Ministries (WCM) has developed life changing programs for people who have battled drugs, alcohol and/or destructive behavior patterns. They provide men and women the necessary skills to be self-sufficient.
By leveraging the $500,000 Dunham Fund grant, WCM was able to obtain a Federal New Market Tax Credit and additional donations which covered 100% of the cost to complete construction on the 47,000-square-foot building. With the additional space, more programs are offered to participants so they can learn necessary skills to obtain a living-wage job. The WCM programs have proven to be three times more effective than the national average.
