WHY WE DO IT:


Noe and Brandi were homeless meth addicts who we first met in 2015 while serving food from a car. They had lost their children because of their poor choices and their family had closed them off as well. At rock bottom, they went to rehab to get clean and returned to Selma to serve others like them through Selma COM. Today they are active in ministry, Brandi is on the Selma com board and they have their little girl back

Addicted to meth, Randy lived in an overturned sofa. After months of building a friendship with him, he trusted us enough to help with doctor appointments, Social Security and housing. Still panhandling, we served him a meal one night and asked if we could pray. The 5-year-old with us led a powerful 20 minute prayer for Randy. Within 1 week he was meth free, and is now a member of our team, helping with showers for the homeless and serving meals.

FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES:


Women and Children Emergency Shelter = $100,000

Local shelters don’t have the ability to house women and their teenage children, creating a crisis for older families trying to find help. Help build a 6-bedroom, with living space, facility to serve these families.

Mobile Shower Trailer = $15,000
A hot shower brings dignity and provides opportunity for meeting the ongoing needs of the homeless. Increase the number of people served each Saturday by helping provide an additional shower trailer.

2020 BUDGET:


 

Program $562,070 80.6%
Admin $99,580 14.3%
Fundraising $35,500 5.1%
Total $697,150
