The best and most important thing you can do to help is to pray that we may present Jesus and His immeasurable love for the least and the lost faithfully and persuasively. It’s our earnest goal to convince those who feel they have the most reason to doubt their own worth that they have a Savior who paid the ultimate price to ransom them. Pray we can do that and do it well!
Secondly, you can come visit us. We have had short term (a few days, a few weeks) and long term (months, a year) visits from interns or just folks who wanted to see what the Lord was doing and walk with us as we walk with Him.
You can also support this work financially by a donation. We are not a non-profit organization and therefor can’t provide you with any kind of tax deferral at this point. We’re pretty small and informal and that’s one of the things that allows us to dedicate all our time and resources to being with the people we serve. If you want to dedicate a donation to a specific area of need, please email us using our contact page and we can discuss that. Otherwise, all donations we receive will go toward a number of different areas like those mentioned above (health assistance, food, documentation, shelter and clothing, and support for our partner organizations). It’s our policy to not give out money to the people we serve. If they have a prescription we can fill it, or pay a bill, buy food (non perishable or a lunch plate if that’s what’s needed), etc. But, we do not give out money. We know the tempation that comes with that.
One specific need we are looking into is providing improved education for some of the children of the families we serve. Because of their low economic/social situation, the cycle of poverty / drugs / violence, etc. is very hard to break. We are considering possibilities and looking into organizations we can partner with to provide improved opportunities for these children. Please pray for that and let us know if that’s something you’d like to help support. In practical terms the simplest way to donate is by using the “Donate” button and sending something via PayPal. If a check is better email me and I’ll send you an address.
Either way, we covet your prayers, and whatever you can do, if you can do that, it’ll be a tremendous help, because all the resources in the world belong to the One you’ll be asking to help us. And He’s very generous!
God bless you!
