"..... every day that you do a little act of kindness for a homeless person, we're one step closer to ending homelessness."  

eThere are many circumstances which can cause people in our area to sometimes require temporary shelter, food, clothing or other types of help. Our prayer is to be that hand-up during a time of crisis.

Because we are a 100% Volunteer Organization, we rely heavily on donations to keep us going.  Running a sheltering program takes the help of so many within the community to enable us to do God's work in helping those struggling in poverty and homelessness. 

Our needs vary from everyday supplies, food, cleaning supplies, transportation fuel, and other expenses. If you are able to help us in any way, simply contact us or mail us a donation.  We appreciate your help as we go about the Lord's work.

Our volunteers will respond within one business day to reports of homeless persons living on the streets and in encampments. Most situations are investigated within 4 hours, depending on number of calls received that day and weather conditions. Please be patient with us, as we are all volunteers.


HOW YOU MAY HELP SUPPORT THIS PROGRAM: 

We are transparent in our financial practices, so you can see how your gifts are being used to help the lost, the poor and homeless in our local community and around the world. If gifts received are above a specific need, they will be used where the need is greatest. We specifically use your gifts in the area that you have specified. 

We are deeply grateful for your investment in Streetreach! Please know we value your faithful prayer support as well as every financial contribution that you entrust to us. 

Believing in God's sovereignty and loving grace, we have not had to accept any government funding at this time. All finances have been through the faithful support of God's people as he moves in their hearts to give to this program. As the Lord blesses and the Holy Spirit moves,  this outreach to the homeless will be funded and grow to the fullest extent of God's will and His plan. BCSTR rests on a foundation of faith and is totally dependent on God's provision in all areas of the interfaith program.
