An Unprecedented “Investment” Opportunity for Faith Communities
Associated Ministries is inviting faith communities throughout Pierce County to prayerfully consider participating in a special giving opportunity: the “Homeless No More Challenge Fund.”
Every gift made to this fund will double in impact thanks to a matching grant from the Help Us Move In organization (http://www.helpusmovein.org/home). We encourage faith leaders to present this important need to their entire congregations as a special giving opportunity during the holidays.
Throughout the years Associated Ministries has been blessed to partner with many congregations that are committed to caring for the most vulnerable in our communities and that desire to invest in creating positive change.
Where society has failed to look after the most vulnerable among us, we are asking local faith communities to step up to provide hope for parents who cannot meet this most basic need for their children: stable shelter.
Your designated gift or special collection for the Homeless No More Fund will give many families hope for the future. United by our call to love our neighbors, together we can make a difference to help end chronic homelessness as people of faith.
Through this special fund Associated Ministries is able to assist those families with the greatest vulnerabilities, as identified by our thorough screening process. AM case managers work with each eligible family to determine the minimum amount of one-time assistance they require to successfully move into a stable home of their own.
The Homeless No More Challenge Fund allows AM to serve families with urgent or exceptional needs who would otherwise be left without options. This unique and valuable resource, funded almost entirely by local faith communities, is an inspiring example of compassion in action to serve the poorest of the poor.
Thank you for considering an investment in this vital effort this holiday season! Remember that every gift is doubled in impact thanks to the matching funds provided by Help Us Move In!
