Official Mission Statement Signposts Ministries’ mission is to serve families that have children with chronic health problems or disabilities, both locally and internationally, for the glory of God, through compassionate, godly care, in a manner that serves the whole person. We strive to minister to families and meet their needs, to the best of our ability, in all of these areas: social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual
Official Statement on Scripture Our view of the scriptures reflects 2 Timothy 3:16. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. In other words, the scriptures were given to man, through God’s inspiration, and are therefore without error, containing only truth. This truth is beneficial for us in these ways: for teaching and instructing; to bring conviction in our own lives as to how we should live; to constantly correct, improve, and straighten the path we are following; to instruct and educate us in the ways of virtue, integrity, leading us to not be divided in our minds and actions, but be pure and single-minded, as we focus on obeying God’s truth.
Who we are:
Signposts Ministries is a 501(c)3 charitable and religious non-profit. We are made up: of parents who love their children with disabilities or chronic health needs, community members who are passionate about advocating for the disabled, people (adults and children) of faith who want to live out our calling to love others.
Who we serve:
While we are a faith-based organization, we desire to serve any child or family who is in need of our service. We offer support to any child who faces a challenge to their health, whether mentally or physically. Food allergies, mental health diagnoses, physical disabilities, cancer, autism spectrum disorders- we reach out to all these communities, finding that often children have more than one diagnosis, and may have secondary as well as primary challenges.
Our purpose is to serve children with disabilities and their families in these areas:
- By providing a social outlet and emotional support through connecting people through social media, support groups, sports groups, etc. for children with disabilities and their families.
- By providing practical and tangible support by connecting families and children in need with financial resources, volunteer time, and/or equipment to help them cope with a disability or chronic medical condition.
- By being a source of reliable, current information about the latest health products and research, as well as an educational resource for families and children (with and without disabilities) to learn more about living with ongoing medical or mental health needs.
- By developing spiritual resources such as Bible studies, devotions, books, and blog posts specific to the needs and challenges of children coping with disabilities and chronic medical conditions, and their families and friends.
We have many different kinds of programs. Please contact us for specific information, or watch the blog for updates.
We are based in Union County, North Carolina, but we partner with ministries locally, nationally, and globally to care for children with disabilities, and support their families. We connect people in need with resources available on both domestic and international levels.
