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
We are excited to announce the Grand Opening for the new Phoenix Daytime Drop-In Center will be on Saturday, August 16, from 2-5pm. It's an opportunity to for you to come and check out this new community resource to help the homeless. You can experience the variety of resources we offer those who come to the center. Please SAVE THE DATE for this Grand Opening/Open House event.
You can contribute to the work of C-U at Home!
On June 13, 2013, we FINALLY received the letter we've been waiting 11 months for. It was our determination letter from the IRS indicating that C-U at Home is now officially a tax-exempt non-profit! Three very important things this will allow us now to do are: receive the donation of real property, hire employees, and offer tax receipts for all donated items including furniture and household goods. We recently hired a professional case manager for our residents. This case manager develops individual care plans and meets with each resident on a weekly basis, tracking progress and encouraging positive momentum.
Will you help us fund this new position?
As we launch into the new year, God has laid on our heart as a ministry a few new directions to pursue.
One exciting opportunity is to develop a Daytime Drop-in Center. Our hope is to provide a safe, accessible, welcoming atmosphere to build relationships with those who are living on the streets. God has provided a former bar that was named the Phoenix as the ideal location for this new center. And we are even keeping the name, The Phoenix.
Two other opportunities still involve housing and supporting the homeless. Our Recovery House is up and running, dedicated to men who have completed an addiction rehabilitation program and are committed to walking in their recovery. Another is to dedicate a Family House to support someone with a dependent or more than one child.
