The History of Serve

In 1979, the time was right, the time was ‘now’! Community need for emergency help was rising and resources were very limited. Churches did what they could, people chipped in to help, but there needed to be an organized effort to join forces to make a greater impact in the lives of families in need.

This was when a devoted Social Worker and three local Pastors came together to form Stafford Emergency Relief through Volunteer Efforts, affectionately known as SERVE The Social Worker was Jeri Dulin (Redman), she has come home to SERVE and is now on our Board! The Pastors were Jim Treslow, Jack Hancox and Glenn Thomas. Their mission was to provide for the emergency needs of local Stafford families in need of food, utility, housing and prescription assistance. These compassionate people knew that there were good people suffering with great need and that Social Services was unable to do but so much to help! More resources needed to be made available to them for their survival, hence, SERVE was born.
