Days and hours will vary according to programs, however a volunteer is usually in office on Tuesday mornings 9am-12 noon for assistance /drop off of items for the homeless.
Winter Nigths Sheltering Sites: Winter has not even arrived and we are already receiving 12-13 calls a day for assistance with either sheltering, rental or utilities, food, etc. The needs are great!
It has been a wet month, many on the streets are seeking shelter - As of today due to the demand we are full- NO BED SPACES AVAILABLE.
Where do our funds come from? 70% from fundraisers, 20% from individuals/social clubs, and 10% from churches- We have absolutely NO paid staff
More than 45 million people in America are living in poverty today – one in four individuals. Poverty doesn’t discriminate. It often takes one misfortune such as an illness or one missed paycheck to change an individual or family’s life and cause them to fall below the poverty line. Will you help us save lives? Will you open your heart and doors and become a church host site for the homeless for 1 week this winter? It takes all the churches working in unity to meet the needs across this broad county.
We are grateful to God for his great blessing on this outreach to the homeless and needy in our area. However, none of our continued services would be possible without the loyalty and faithfulness of our many friends. From our humble beginnings, to our new satellite office we still serve the ones in our community with the greatest need. Garry
