For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat;
I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink;
I was a stranger and you took Me in. --Matthew 25:35
Our ministry team is GROWING and we couldn't be more excited! Over the next few months we will be adding several new staff members to the C-U at Home team. Could this be you?
The first team member to add is a new role, as Managing Director. We are looking for a mature believer with solid experience managing both operations and personnel. He or she might hold an MBA and have experience in both the commercial business and non-profit arenas.
If this sounds like you or a someone that you know, please have them submit a resume and cover letter today.
This summer we also plan to add two new staff members to lead our Phoenix Daytime Drop-In Center and another team member to be our office manager. To keep up to date with new positions as they are posted, please sign up for our email newsletter.
We are SO excited to share our new C-U at Home documentary. The film chronicles our story from conception to birth to today. Above is cinematographer Isaac Musgrave, Melany Jackson (founder of C-U at Home) and Phil Gioja who had the vision and was the creator of the film.
It's our hope to show this film in many different venues over the following months including churches, schools, teams, civic organizations, and theatres. It has already won national and international awards at various film festivals. If you are interested in hosting a showing of The Phoenix: Hope Is Rising, please contact us and we will get a date on the schedule. This is a powerful tool to share about many of the challenges associated with homelessness and also to inspire others to follow after God's leading.

THANK YOU Champaign-Urbana for an INCREDIBLE One Winter Night on Friday, February 5, in downtown Champaign. Our Mayor, Police Chief, teachers, pastors, public servants, students, and families successfully spent 12 hours outside in a cardboard refrigerator box. We also shared several powerful opportunities for you to learn more about our friends without an address will all be a part of One Winter Night.
It was a powerful night of community in downtown Champaign. Many old friends, neighbors, co-workers, and relatives connecting and re-connecting. New friendships being formed between box dwellers, volunteers, donors, and folks visiting the downtown area.
We are keenly aware of the affect the state budget crisis is having on social services, including homeless resources in our area. C-U at Home is blessed to be 100% privately funded with donates from our community. We were blessed by meeting our financial goal for One Winter Night. Thank you for your financial investment in our ministry.
