About Your Mission


Our Purpose

“To serve the community, jointly and ecumenically, in such a way as to make the compassion and reconciling purpose of God felt where ever there is human need.”

Who We Are & What We Do…


The Watertown Urban Mission brings together about 40 member churches with local community-minded organizations, businesses and individuals to help people through difficult times with programs that feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, give shelter to the homeless, visit the imprisoned, give aid to the sick, and more.

Centrally located in the City of Watertown, the Watertown Urban Mission serves residents in the city and throughout the county, and works with other community service organizations in and outside the city to ensure needs are met adequately and efficiently. With generous donor and volunteer support, the Mission helps people rise above their circumstances and in turn, this strengthens our community as a whole.

Programs of the Watertown Urban Mission are designed to empower people by giving them a hand up to rise above what in many cases is the most difficult time they have faced in their life. Our programs include our Food Pantry, Critical Needs Program, The Bridge Program, Christian Care Center, Food $en$e, Dollar Dinners, HEARTH II Program, St. Dismas fund, and Community Service supervision.

How We Are Governed…


The Watertown Urban Mission is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that oversees the work of the Mission through committees and direct involvement with staff. The board has officers in the roles of president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer.



The 2013 Board of Directors are as follows:


President Beverly Brown


Vice President Fr. Steven Murray


Secretary JoAnne Rhubart


Treasurer Dale Klock



Beverly Brown, President


In addition to the four officers, your Watertown Urban Mission Board is led by Yvonne Brown, Chuck Capone, Bruce Irwin, Judy Gentner, Richard Halpin, Krista Kittle, Marianne Malatino, Dan Osborne, Lyle Pickert, Maria Purcell, Susan M. Snell, Lisa Storey and Rev. Joyce Woodcock.

Our Constitution…

We, the signatories hereof, recognizing that the People of God must be sensitive to the needs of the total area and in constant contact and dialogue where the community is being built, where decisions are made, where people work, and where people suffer, that we must inspire and encourage both the citizens and those in authority so to remake the community that it shall progress toward what God intended it to be, a place for people to live free of bigotry, injustice, poverty, suffering and despair; and that better to accomplish these ends, all of the religious groups of the community must work together.
