Diary

NOV 10 - Imagine having to sleep outside tonight... "Tom" can...he's been sleeping outside for days. What stood between him and a county shelter was a bus pass...a little piece of paper priced under $3...yet invaluable. Thank you donors for allowing us be here to remove yet another barrier.

OCT 24 - We've had some powerful conversations over the last few weeks...stories of struggle...feelings of frustration and despair - yet, woven in were themes of determination, perseverance, and hope. As important as the financial support we provide are the relationships we build. Love and compassion have empowering effects on the human spirit.

SEPT 22 - Today we share another case of cell phone = employment = one step closer to self-sustainability!

AUG 31 - In January 2016 "Sara" was a shelter resident...we helped her get an ID, a resume, and a haircut to aid her job search. Since then she has gotten a job, found housing, and obtained some stability. In July she lost her roommate...and then she was facing eviction. We were able to prevent the eviction, and "Sara" has secured more affordable housing going forward.

AUG 1 - Earlier this year we put minutes on "Mary's" cell phone when she was living in a shelter. "You really helped me. It doesn't sound like much - less than $100 but it made a huge difference! I needed to talk to people to accomplish what I need to do. I'm a success story."

JUL 5 - Every week ACT in Faith partners with other local agencies. One common scenario is when their Case Managers have a housing plan in place for someone but the housing isn't available for a day, a fews days or a week. We assist with funding for brief hotel stays so the person/family doesn't remain or become homeless.

JUN 2 - Cell phone, bus tokens, work supplies...in the last 2 weeks we've provided to several people with these 3, much needed items. But equally as important, we provided a welcoming place for them to turn, compassionate listeners, and faith in their ability to forge their future. Thank you donors for making all of this possible.
