JACKSON HOMELESS WOMEN’S PROJECT
Founded in 2016, the Jackson Homeless Women’s Outreach Project is a non profit organization currently run by 3 women from the Jackson Metro area who were looking to do what they could to give back to the community. The organization depends 100% on help from the community. None of the staff receives any compensation for the work they do within the charity. This means that every cent you donate goes back to women and children in need.
The ECW has voted to do a supply collection for The Jackson Homeless Women Project for February.
A box will be available in the parish hall on Sunday to place your donations.
Please pick up an item or two from the list below and put it in the collection box.

Who We Are
We are Episcopal Church Women of all ages, ethnic origins and socioeconomic backgrounds who hold a variety of views. However, the common denominator of our members is love of God and the wish to do His work.
Mission, Vision & Role
Mission – Centered in congregations, the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) empowers women to do Christ’s ministry in the world.
Vision – Our vision for all women of the Episcopal Church is that we become a vibrant blend of all ages, coming together as a peacemaking, healing part of the Church. We aspire to be a Godspark-shining and sharing the love of Christ.
St. Peter’s ECW’s focus is on ministry within and outside our congregation..
We have helped with a variety of projects within the church as well as outreach projects outside the church.
The ECW’s big project each year is our “Art on the Rez” event. This event is held the last weekend in September of each year. This event allows area artists to display their art from Friday night through Sunday afternoon. The ECW receives a percentage of the sales and ticket sales from the Friday evening preview party. This money is marked for outreach.
This event also brings people from all over the area to our church where we are able to show our hospitality.
The ECW sponsors our yearly “Feast of St. Nicholas” in December.
We also come together for fun and fellowship. We host a few get-togethers throughout the year. Some are just for fun and some are focused on fundraising for our projects.
If you would like to be a part of the ECW, please attend the next meeting.
Time and place for next meeting to be announced. All women of the church are members of the ECW.
