WIA is a small but powerful faith based 501 c (3) organization.
But whoever has the world’s goods (adequate resources), and sees his brother in need, but has no compassion for him, how does the love of God live in him? 1 John 3:17
WIA feeds the homeless physical and spiritual food in Shelby County. Our ministry assists in several ways:
