Program accomplishments

In 2020: 25,397 nights of shelter provided for our homeless neighbors. 97,897 meals served to hungry men, women, and children. 167 different women and 38 different children assisted at the Women's Shelters.


Your generous donations of food, cleaning and hygiene products, and other household items saves money that we can then devote to our other life-changing ministries. We're very grateful to the individuals, families, churches, businesses, and others that choose to support our work in this way.
