Wesley Urban Ministries - A registered, charitable organization providing social service programs for over 47 years from four locations in North and Central Hamilton. Wesley sees the many faces of poverty at each of its programs; children from low-income families, street involved youth and adults who have no place else to go. All of Wesley's programming goals flow from its vision statement: "increasing options…decreasing barriers". Wesley's programs are offered at no charge to marginalized populations in the greater Hamilton community.

Rick and Jessica have participated in events that have helped the Wesley Urban Ministries raise over $150,000.
