The Barnabas Connection connects people in need with resources to help them by providing access to health & human

services, client advocacy, and community education.


At the heart of our work is a volunteer-staffed phone-based resource referral service that connects clients in need with

resources to help them. Please call 512-847-1664 to speak to a Barnabas phone volunteer.


Services focused in Wimberley and Hays County include advocacy with local service providers; annual events like the

"Back to School Fiesta" that provide for specific community needs, and encouraging education and discussion among

community leaders about the issues of poverty.


Governed by a board of directors with members from the community and ecumenical partners, the Barnabas Connection began as an outreach of Wimberley United Methodist Church. In 2013, the Barnabas Connection incorporated and is recognized as a 501(c)(3) organization.


For more information on services and volunteer opportunities please visit the Barnabas Connection website.  The Barnabas Connection Executive Director can be reached at
