It’s a win-win! The ECG program hires those who have been and/or are currently homeless to build skills and contribute to the community. ECG’s serve as a community ambassador to our homeless three hours a week doing things like, reporting suspected break-ins, picking-up needles, directing folks to resources, administering first-aid, and more.
We’re grateful to partner with other churches and local businesses in funding the Engaged Community Guide program so it can continue in Mission in 2019! This is a tangible example of our vision! We are working towards building a good world and the $1,000 given to this program came from two of our Storehouse funds (1st Stage Local Outreach & 2nd Stage Local Outreach).
