Pam handles much of the administrative responsibility for Streetlight. She has a big heart for women, leading groups, teaching, praying with them.

Executive Director

After retiring from Delta Airlines in 2008, Jerry began volunteering his time at the local street ministry and food pantry in Wilmington, Ohio. His occasional time spent volunteering turned into full time, and he joined Sugartree Ministries staff.

His heart for the homeless, the poor, the broken became driven with compassion and concern. He is most satisfied when he can engage with them and help meet their needs. Over the past 15 years, besides Sugartree Ministries in Wilmington, Jerry has served at Lima Rescue Mission, Lima, OH; City Gospel Mission, Cincinnati, OH; Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Services, Cincinnati, OH.

Streetlight Ministries was born out of a vision to freely minister and serve the homeless. He continues to seek out those in need and offer support
