Together at Mikey’s Place

Together at Mikey's Place provides a long term solution for young adults confronted with a lack of meaningful opportunities after high school. Participants receive vocational training, dignified work, and purpose in a supportive environment.

The artisans of Together at Mikey's Place have their workshop at MDPC and are in need of additional dedicated and committed volunteers who can help make a positive impact. Training is provided and schedules are flexible. To learn more about volunteering with Together at Mikey’s Place, contact Ingrid Monroy:


Local Schools

Mentored youth report better behavior, stronger friendships, and improved grades because of the commitment of one adult. You can be that ONE ADULT! With just a small investment of time once a week as a mentor or tutor, you can make a big difference in the life of a young person at a local school. In just 30-60 minutes weekly, mentors, tutors, and volunteers supply the gift of hope to those they touch and give young people a vision of success.

Kids' Meals

In Houston, one in four preschool children go to bed hungry. You can make sure there is one less empty tummy! Kids' Meals is a community based organization which serves healthy lunches to preschool-aged children living in poverty. Nutritious meals are provided Monday through Friday year-round, free of cost to the families.

At MDPC, we meet the 2nd Wednesday of each month (exceptions in Apr and Jul) from 4:30 to 6:00pm in our Fellowship Hall. Each participant is asked to bring five loaves of white or wheat bread and a servant's heart. All are welcome, so come join the effort to end childhood hunger in Houston!

Registration opens at 12:00am on the first of each month and is REQUIRED. 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering to make Kids' Meals sandwiches at MDPC.

Registration for the next Kids' Meals Project: Thu, June 27
