In Skagit County, there are numerous women and men who are caught in cycles of abuse, poverty, addiction, and incarceration. TN Pastoral advocates seek to provide a holistic approach through combining pastoral care and advocacy, addressing both root issues as well as systemic blocks, meeting folks where they are at in their journey. This includes practical support navigating various obstacles, such as housing, jobs, debt, licensing, addiction, domestic violence, and parental custody. We seek to love people and connect them to the unconditional love of Jesus, and wholeheartedly welcome them into a new community of faith. We invite people into a new kind of family that is a safe and healing space where people’s true selves can surface.
