Our Mission and Vision
The Way Station exists to display the love of Jesus Christ in practical ways to individuals, families, and communities.
For over 25 years The Way Stations has been a place for the lonely to find friendship, the hungry to find food, and the hurting to find healing. Over the years, we've ministered in a variety of ways. What began in 1988 as an 'open room fellowship' quickly morphed to food and clothing distribution. By participating in programs such as 'welfare to work' and 'Jobs Ready-Set-Go' The Way Station has seen many people move from struggling to striving.
We currently run two sites for ministry. Within The Way Station buildings we house "DeVine's" thrift store. This store provides opportunity for job training as well as provides income for the ministry. It is our hope that the store would bring people of all socioeconomic groups together. Regardless of our financial state, we all have something to learn from each other. TWS encourages ALL to donate and shop at DeVines.
Incorporated in 1988, the Way Station is a not-for profit, 501(c) 3 compassionate ministry. We assist families in need through our food pantry and monthly distribution, job training, support groups, emergency assistance, and special events. Our sites are located at: 769 Springfield Road, Columbiana, Ohio and 125 West Fifth Street, East Liverpool, Ohio.
Visiting The Way Station in person is the best way to understand who we are and what we do. We encourage ALL to stop in and check us out. One of our staff members would be happy to give you a tour and explain our programs.
