What We Do

Godly love and material resources for homeless individuals & families and domestic violence & trafficking survivors

Food, Shelter, Friendship: First Fruit Ministries shares God’s unconditional love through outreach and supportive housing for people experiencing homelessness or trafficking. Founded by Rick and Lee Anna Stoker over 20 years ago, First Fruit Ministries began as a street outreach to people living under bridges and in the woods of our community, women and girls caught in the commercial sex industry and human trafficking, and to our local gangs. This work is for people with a passion to see those who are poor, who feel broken and have nowhere to go, the unseen on our streets who are lost in cycles of physical disability, mental health crisis, substance abuse captivity, and emotional trauma, set free. The purpose of First Fruit Ministries is no less than to reach out to this hurting community with unconditional love, with hot meals, with medical care on the streets, and with emotional care that is consistent and trustworthy; and to give a warm home and a stable platform for personal growth to those ready to break free.
