PRAYER AND OTHER NEEDS
• We need your prayers and people to hire our situationally or chronically homeless friends so they can work towards independence and self sufficiency.

• We need people willing to rent rooms to folks that have an income but no place to go. (we will arrange meeting and screening for jobs, or rooms to rent at our offices). We have a referral form and a review form once someone has worked a job so we can get recommendations on how the job was completed and if the customer was satisfied. Many of those we help have great skills just find themselves in a tough situation that is hard to get out of.
