It's time to fill up our Purple Bags with hygiene products. Our Centers provide services to over 1,300 men, women and children each day. Many come to our Centers with absolutely nothing. This annual drive will help us provide personal care items to those in our programs and to many others through our community ourteaches during the year.
Girlfriends 4 Girlfriends is a tremendous group of women who want to help single women and women with children attain safe and affordable housing. Perhaps the biggest hurdle for women graduating our programs is to find safe housing. G4G is raising funds for various housing projects.
Hope often begins with a Meal. Many hurting people come to one of our Centers to get something to eat and we use this opportunity to encourage them to enter one of our residential programs or to help them find another place of help. You can help fight hunger by becoming a Meals-A-Month partner.
