Updated: Apr 28

All of our program's host and support congregations are currently closed and we are not accepting new families into the program at this time.


We are currently supporting the 17 families that were in the Emergency Shelter, Transitional Housing, and Graduate Programs at the start of the pandemic. All of our families are safely housed for the duration of the pandemic.

87% of our families needing support have become unemployed as a result of the pandemic and are not yet receiving unemployment funds. Because of this, our operating costs have significantly increased, as we are supporting the families with shelter, food, supplies, and gasoline. Our projected program expenses due to the pandemic are expected to increase by more than $20,000 and counting.


For ways that you can help support our families during this uncertain time , please see our COVID-19 Donation Needs.
