Matthew 25 Ministires started in 1989 with volunteers that went into the prisons and helped inmates upon their release by picking them up and being a friend. We soon realized the main need was housing, so in 1991 my late husband and I started housing returning citizens in West Palm Beach.In 2000 we were ging a 21 acre ranch outside the city of Okeechobee where we ministered to up to 15 at a time. In 2008 we found our current location near Pahokee where we now average 125.
