A structured program where we assist homeless families (with children) with housing, by providing temporary housing and either giving them supportive services, such as obtaining their GED if they have not finished school or our food pantry or referring them to the correct agency for job placement, daycare, etc. We help them with budgeting their money, saving for the future, help provide or refer them for all other life skills to help the families to achieve self-sufficiency so they become a part of the community and not return to being homeless again.
This is a vital part of our ministry we serve between 600-900 families a month.We serve on average 20,000 pounds a month to the community We allow the experience of shopping instead of the traditional box of food. Our Candleheart residents walk with the food pantry clients to help serve. During our latest decline in the economy we have signed up on average 15 new families a month. Our pantry serves 1st-3rd weeks of the month. We close the last week of the month for cleaning and restocking. This ministry is funded by donations only.
