About Us

In the late 1980s a woman named Paddie Foster, who was struggling with cancer, told her minister Rev. Mel Schlachter that she had a desire to help people. He honored her desire and when people would come to Trinity Episcopal Church for help, they would meet with her. Rev. Schlachter shared how well this approach was working with the Troy Council of Churches, and several churches decided to join together to support a part time social worker to respond to the many requests for assistance received by the churches.
