Ruth Ellis Center

Founded in 1999, Ruth Ellis Center (REC) has established a national reputation for quality and innovation in providing trauma-informed services for lesbian, gay, bi-attractional, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ+) youth, and young adults. Salem Church collects and assembles hygiene and cleaning kits to be donated to the center. Salem also provides and serves dinner several times a year at their Drop-in Center.

Neighborhood House Farmington Hills

Reaching out to the greater community is an ongoing mission at Salem Church.  A long-standing tradition has been to supply much needed food and household items to the Neighborhood House of Farmington Hills. Throughout the pandemic, Salem has carried on with this calling through its monthly food drives. We have even included crocheted winter hats made by our Prayer Shawl ministry members! And at harvest time, we include fresh produce from Salem’s Community Garden to the Neighborhood House pantry. We also assemble Christmas breakfast boxes and Easter baskets to be donated to the families that Neighborhood House serve.

Community Food Collection

Many thanks to all who bring in items for the Neighborhood House Food Pantry Collection! Your continued generosity to bringing in food can make life just a little easier for those, who for whatever reason, find themselves at the Pantry.

Donation Bins are located at the front and side entrance to the church

Farmington Neighborhood House


As Oakland County’s only comprehensive program for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, HAVEN provides shelter, counseling, advocacy and educational programming to nearly 30,000 people a year. Each year Salem Church coordinates a mission project for the benefit of the residents of the Haven Shelter program. Past projects include donating outdoor toys for the children enrolled in their summer programs, toiletry kits for the residents, and monetary donations.

Farmington Public Schools

Salem has donated back packs and school supplies since 2014 to Farmington Public School for students in need. These students are able to start the school year with the supplies needed for a successful year! We also participate in FPS “Adopt a Family” Christmas program, purchasing gifts for two families during the Christmas season.
