In 1986, Barnabas began as an outreach effort of St. Michael's church. Soon thereafter, the Ministerial Alliance responded and other churches and concerned citizens joined in supporting the endeavor. What began as small group effort to help those in need has evolved into today's Barnabas Center – the safety net provider for Nassau County citizens in crisis.

During the last few years, Barnabas has experienced an extraordinary increase in demand for all five of our service programs. Last year Barnabas served over 5,000 individuals, 40% of them being children. Over the past five years, program expenditures have almost tripled – from $1 million to $3 million. Necessary program growth has resulted in Barnabas programs being housed in crowded, separate locations.

The Board of Directors has diligently explored ways to consolidate spaces and ensure efficient , cost effective delivery of services to meet the needs of our community.

enhance operational capacity

Barnabas Center services are funded by private donations, churches, foundations, and people like you – who help us to carry out our mission. Your generosity has brought us such a great distance since 1986.
