Our Mission

Serving Our Neighbors (SON) Ministries is a faith based not for profit which partners with children and families facing the unique challenges of suburban poverty in Hilliard (OH) and beyond. We mobilize life-improving resources and connect families to these resources (some of which we facilitate) and to a network of organizations and people who together strive to help strengthen families & our community. We offer a respect-filled HAND UP to those in need and mobilize the community to Serve Our Neighbor!
