Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
Our Mayor of Manning, SC, Julia Nelson, has presented us with several Certifications of Appreciation for our presence in Clarendon County. Before we arrived May 18, 2008, any woman with domestic violence issues needing transitional housing was transported to Sumter, Florence, Orangeburg or Columbia. Now we can serve them.
We had several walks to spread awareness about our Organization and our advocacy against domestic violence. The flood and hurricane, back to back, caused us to redirect our efforts for fundraising.
We are a 501C3 Faith-based Organization.
"Ending the Silence on Domestic Violence."
Encourage any woman in an abusive situation to contact us, after they have made a police report in the city or county where the abuse occurred.
Jordan Crossroads Ministry Center-Haven of Rest is a faith-based 501c3 nonprofit transitional domestic violence crisis center for women and their children, that is community and integrity minded. Our mission is to provide a safe haven for women and their children escaping their aggressive/abusive partner or spouse. JCMC-Haven of Rest strives for survivors to acquire independence and start a new life without the threat of abuse.

MARK YOU CALENDAR
2nd Annual Golf Tournament scheduled for Saturday, September 12, 2020, at The Players Course . We will be looking for you to enjoy the Tournament with us. Ann Driggers has the Tournament packages with SPONSOR Letters and Golfers Roster, along with FLYER.
We have a 2020 Ford Eurosport SUV for a Hole in One Contest. $10 for each ticket. I am expecting someone to WIN!!!!
2 weeks from the BIG DAY of EXCITEMENT. Will anyone get a Hole in One and win the car? We will see what happens on that day.
The Tournament was a GREAT SUCCESS. We had 22 4-person Teams (88 Golfers), along with a host of VOLUNTEERS that made the Event what it was - SPECTACULAR!!!!!! We raised over $12,000.00, which will be used to keep JCMC-Haven of Rest going and assisting with the Costs to bring THE HOLY DONUT SHOPPE online. October 31, 2020 at 3:00 PM we will dedicate the beautiful building at 13 W. Boyce Street, Manning, SC and open for business MONDAY< NOVEMBER 2 at 7:00 AM. Plan to come and have a donut and cup of coffee or drink with us to celebrate what GOD has done. He gave me the vision in 2002 and is now bringing it to fruition. WHAT A MIGHTY GOD HE IS!!!!!
The Holy Donut SHoppe, the For Profit arm of Jordan Crossroads Ministry Center is in full swing of upgrading the building so we can put the equipment in to begin finishing donuts and making them available for all the customers to get their daily "fix" of donuts and coffee or other drink. Tammy Nelon, my daughter and very skilled Project Manager worked diligently to get us to where we are today. Donna Hodge and I are continuing the progress to see it to conclusion.
Several challenges have occurred to slow things down a month or so, but we are on TARGET with the Dedication being planned for Saturday, October 31 (my 73rd birthday). WHAT A SUPER EXCITING BIRTHDAY I WILL HAVE THAT DAY with invited guest to celebrate the COMPLETION of the renovation of the building. We will have the donut shoppe in front and the INTAKE offices in the back for Domestic Violence women and their children who need a SAFE HAVEN from their abuser. We will now have a THRESHHOLD for them before going to the Women's Center. We are looking for VOLUNTEERS to work in the Donut Shoppe and women to assist in the INTAKE office. If you are interested, pleases contact Ann Driggers at 803-460-5572 for further discussion.
COME SEE US GROW AND GLOW FOR JESUS. I'm sure HE would have loved a donut and cup of Coffee or Juice.
GOD is blessing us financially to meet all the monetary needs, however, if you would like to make a generous donation of any amount, we would appreciated it and put it to good use. You can mail to JCMC, PO BOX 166, Alcolu, SC 29001. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.
The Dedication of The Holy Donut Shoppe Saturday, Octobere 31, 2020 was a great success. We had 32 in attendance and several came to the Shoppe after the Dedication. Many compliments on the Interior Design done by Donna Hodge and her sister Sheila, along with the Volunteers. Beautiful to say the least. Thank you to all the Volunteers who assisted with the Event to insure all felt welcomed and a part of the Special Day. WOW, what a 73rd birthday for me. Thank You, God, for a beautiful day. Unfortunately all is not ready for opening the Shoppe to sell donuts and coffee, etc, but hopefully soon, perhaps within the month of November. When we get our Inspection Certificates and Business License (can get after Inspections), we will be open to serve those who come in the doors. I have had customers already but cannot serve donuts until all is complete.

I believe you will feel comfortable, peaceful and receive respect from the members of the Board.
