For a new outreach ministry in a parish, the story of Martha’s Village is both inspirational and encouraging.
In 1990, a dedicated group of parishioners from Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in Indio began serving 30 hot meals a week to people in need from the local area. As the years went on, new programs and services were added. A partnership with Father Joe’s Village and St. Vincent de Paul from San Diego brought new support and possibilities.
