Ward RS Humanitarian Specialists


The ward Relief Society Humanitarian Specialist works under the direction of the ward's Relief Society President and also the Stake Relief Society Humanitarian Specialist to coordinate humanitarian efforts at the ward, stake and community levels.  These projects and services fulfill special needs within our communities and help the ward come together in service.

The ward Humanitarian Specialist is the information bulletin board for humanitarian/service projects, drives and stake needs. When a stake email is sent out for needs, commodity drives, events, ideas, etc.. it is up to the ward Humanitarian Specialist to forward that email in a timely manner to all her sisters in the ward. She will need to make a ward email contact list and keep it updated with new ward sisters, or sisters that have moved. She is a support in helping promote and being familiar with service ideas from that website to help anyone in her ward looking for service

The ward specialist discusses the various needs of the community with the Stake Humanitarian Specialist and with her ward Relief Society president.  They then  determine which humanitarian projects and services best fit their ward’s resources and skills.  They work together to set goals and organize plans and activities which support these goals.  The ward specialist keeps records of the projects and services in order to provide information for her ward Relief Society and for the Stake Humanitarian Specialist.

The ward specialist provides encouragement, support and direction to the sisters in the ward to meet the humanitarian goals.  She helps with the collection and delivery of humanitarian project items.

The ward specialist attends the Humanitarian meetings to discuss projects and goals for the year.

The specialist attends the ward and stake Humanitarian work meetings and may be called upon to assist at those meetings.

Not only do these projects benefit and help the communities, but they strengthen each Relief Society as sisters feel needed and participate with a unified purpose. The sisters  strengthen their testimonies of service as they help children and adults in their own community, country and around the world.

For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” Matthew 25:35-40
