Streams of Water is Alameda's community outreach ministry and is led by John Helton. This ministry provides a weekly food pantry, financial assistance for utility bills, holiday meal baskets, an Angel Tree Christmas program, and an annual Back to School Roundup (school supply giveaway). We hope that the Streams of Water ministry is a blessing to all the people that it serves.
