Our Story

One small idea inspired many big dreams - all sustained by a partnership with the community. Elevate Community Ministries began based on the needs in every community, including food, transportation, childcare, jobs, recovery, housing, and healthcare. 


We exist to remove barriers and provide opportunities so that people may elevate their lives with the help of God.

Who We Serve

The ministries of Elevate primarily target the A.L.I.C.E. population, defined by The United Way as Asset-Limited, Income-Constrained, Employed. These individuals are the working class - servers, gas station attendees, assistants, front desk clerks...etc. They are often living paycheck to paycheck, making between $30,000-$64,116, with every dollar accounted for. Research concludes that 38% of Michigan residents are considered A.L.I.C.E. or below.


Government assistance programs, charities, and churches primarily target those living in poverty, only making up 13% of the population. That leaves 25% of the population being A.L.I.C.E. who are widely underserved and forgotten. There are over 10,000 households in the Midland community and 60,000 households in the surrounding Great Lakes Bay Region that struggle to provide the basic necessities of life and are often left making trade-offs.

Offering affordable solutions protects the dignity of the working class by providing opportunities for families to provide for themselves at a price they can afford.

Why Partnership

Elevate Community Ministries is a proud partner of many in this community, from churches to foundations to corporations to individual contributors. Each partner is an agent for change when it comes to elevating this community! You can make a difference in the community by serving A.L.I.C.E. through time or financial contribution. Your dollar makes a personal and direct impact.
