At LMS Compassion Place Ministries, each center is a:

  • Compassion Center to bring comfort to those in need. Clothing and food are offered free of charge to folks in need (see center schedule below), as well as spiritual care. Visitors can always find someone to listen and pray with them.
  • Thrift Center to provide bargains for those on a budget. Clothing, housewares, books, toys, jewelry, gifts, collectibles, furniture (in larger centers) are some of the items that can be found at the centers. You just never know what you may find! All proceeds go to help fund the LMS Compassion Place ministries.
  • Donation Center to provide a friendly and convenient  place to bring your in-kind donations. LMS Compassion Place is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, so your gifts are tax deductible. (Items must be in good, clean, usable condition — some other limitations apply. Please call center with any questions.)

There are ten Compassion Centers in the Maryland / Southern Pennsylvania area, with the newest center having opened in the Hickory, MD area in 2015. In addition to providing help with tangible needs, there are shoulders for crying on, ears for listening, and chapels for praying. Our volunteers and Jesus are often the answer to someone’s prayers.

While visiting a center, ask if you would like someone to pray for or with you, or if you would like to discuss any spiritual concerns.

      The Compassion Centers are closed for major holidays — in the near future, they are closed on Martin Luther King Day (Monday, January 20th) and Presidents’ Day (Monday, February 17th).
