Connecting the Wimberley Valley, through community, to change and improve lives.
To make Wimberley a place for all community members to thrive and for generations to learn and grow.
What We Do
The Barnabas Connection is a 501(c)(3) organization governed by a board of directors with members from the community at large.
Because many government and non-profit services are located thirty minutes or more from Wimberley, we work to meet a wide variety of needs for those in our immediate area – from financial and educational resources to emergency action support to counseling and referrals.
Our Core Values
We believe that all community members are valued and have something to contribute to the greater good of our community.
We take pride in showing up alongside community members in times of need. We believe in displaying empathy and listening with open hearts and minds, while serving with humility; knowing that we all experience times of need.
We chose to empower our community members with opportunities for growth that allow them to maintain dignity and self-worth.
We strive to be a “Connecting Place”, where the community comes to support each other in times of crisis and in times of celebration. We invite others to share their time, talents, and resources with their neighbors.
We envision a community where all community members are provided the opportunities and tools to become self-sufficient.
We honor and respect our differences and know that together we are stronger.
We know that through the power of education, lives are transformed. We seek for all to be teachers and all to be learners, growing individually and collectively as a community body.
