Habitat for Humanity
Ionia Area Habitat for Humanity is a Christian housing ministry. Their goal is to build homes with families and sell houses at cost and no interest to families who are in need.
Since 1991 Ionia First has made and served a wholesome community dinner once a week in our Fellowship Hall.
All are welcome to join us every Monday night at 6 PM.

We at Ionia First, along with many other local churches and organizations, donate food and funds to this important group.
Housed at our sister church, Zion United Methodist Church, the Ionia Food Pantry helps to meet the nutritional needs of our community.
The pantry is open Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:30 to 5:30

Christian Service Center
Located on S. Depot St here in Ionia
The Christian Service Center distributes clothing and household items to the community.
Ionia First helps to staff center every fourth Wednesday of the month.
The Friends of Jesus Fund was established in response to local churches in Ionia that were unable to assist with the expensive needs present in the community.
Further difficulty came in determining the legitimacy of individual needs.
Without wanting to abdicate the individual churches God-given responsibility to care for the needy, this fund was created so the faith community could band together to meet greater needs.
EightCAP’s experience in doing adequate screening and needs assessment was welcomed as no individual church felt qualified for this work.
