Providing a Hand Up to a better Life!
Hello Friends, Just taking a few minutes to share with you where we are at the Hand Up Houses. Things are changing we are now up to three participants in the women's house with several others applying. Mrs Tammie is handling the growth well. We have commitments from volunteers to help two weekends a month. We still have need for more “weekend warriors” so, continue to pray about stepping into a needed slot at the men's and women's houses. We still have our faithful man participant in men's house and excited about the opportunities ahead. Thanks to all of you who have helped out in some way. Thank you Waters's Church for the Thanksgiving meal and gifts you shared along with your time. That was awesome! Thank you Elaine for helping out the first weekend each month. Thank you churches that are adding us to your monthly giving. God is working mightily in our first four participants and we are convinced the best is yet to come. Our goal is still to build a village around these young men and women. We must be the church and demonstrate the love of the Father. Please prayerfully consider sharing some time. If you have some time get with us about ways to serve. If you have a church or business who would give us an opportunity to come and share we would love it. I could come and bring any of our participants and let you see what God is doing. Sunday nights or Wednesday nights will work most any time. Sunday mornings can be scheduled as well if this will work best for you. Just let me know. Those of you who want to get involved just fill out the volunteer information sheet and let us get in touch to answer any of your questions and find the perfect fit for to in HU!
Remember us especially during the Holiday season. We want to shower our love on the ones God has sent our way. Some of them have family and we want to help them in reaching out and showing they care while getting their lives back in order. So, consider Hand Up during the giving season.
Here are some more ways you can all help:
*Connect me with your pastor or churches in some way. *Become a monthly partner ! Or encourage your employer or church to support Hand Up monthly.*Help us connect with funding opportunities to continue the needed work on houses (roof and porch).*Consider being a volunteer at one of the houses (a volunteer application is attached) Consider being a “Weekend Warrior”. At least two weekends a month we want to give our house managers some time off. We can do this two ways: approved individuals come to the house and stay for a specific time, or for approved homes and families the participants can stay the weekend with a host family. If you are interested get in touch with me or my wife Tammi and we can give more details.(respond to email or call at 423-602-4098 for more information)
Cant wait to hear how you might help us give a Hand UP to someone who needs it!
