Who We Are

Founded in 1987 by Modene Howie, Ben Strickland, and James Sessoms, Operation Reach-Out, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) Christian nonprofit located in Monroe, North Carolina, that strives to provide help and hope to those in need in our community.


Our Mission:

To provide spiritual and physical help and hope to those in need, with the encouraging and loving heart of Christ and without judgment or cynicism.

Our Vision:

We aim to glorify God through our daily interactions with those who come through our doors with any and every need. We seek to share the gospel through our daily lunch and Bible study; offer financial support, emergency shelter, household goods and food assistance for those in crisis; and provide material and educational support for those seeking employment. As needed, we will accomplish our goals through strong partnerships with area churches and other Union County ministries and organizations.
