What does National Outreach look like?
Elim collaborates with fourteen Outreach Network member schools in the Midwestern United States. Our service scope includes onsite and remote educational consultation, school-wide program & process development, resource sharing, professional development and opportunities for school-to-school collaboration. Our National ministry seeks to expand the continuum of educational services for all learners and develop inclusive school communities.

Elim collaborates with eight community leaders representing schools and other ministries in seven countries around the world through the Elim Outreach Network.

As Elim grows in its understanding of global disability realities, we explore and pursue community development ideas such as educational and vocational opportunities for people with disabilities. Elim also develops and shares training resources with ministry leaders who are reaching out to their local communities to support, teach and train others.
