Outreach Sunday for Housing Up

Details

Date:
March 24

On Sunday, March 24th, all loose plate offerings will be donated to Housing Up (formerly known as Transitional Housing Corporation). Housing Up assists homeless and low-income families by developing affordable housing and offering the comprehensive support services needed to transform lives.

St. John’s parishioners have long supported Housing Up by furnishing apartments and through staff and volunteer leadership. Parishioner Earle O’ Donnell currently serves on the Board of Directors. Because there is a large gap between the amount of government funding Housing Up receives and the costs of operating programs and providing the best possible services to families, your donations are sorely needed. In 2017, donors provided about $753,000, often in small amounts– 60% of gifts were less than $500.00, and nearly 40% were less than $10.00. Please make out checks to St. John’s with Housing Up on the memo line.
