Straightway Services

Failure is not an option


Straightway Services began in 2007 under the direction of Pastor Dwight Minnieweather who saw a great need to provide a wrap around service to families in order to help the community; he felt that every person in the family unit played an important part in the stability of the family. Straightway Services offers services to the whole family and our success is measured by the reduction of crime by youth, reduction of recidivism, and the reduction of broken families. Thousands have been fed on a weekly basis, and hundreds of kids have been positively impacted because of our programs
