I’ve been asking around, and have had several discussions with people in our area about “cold weather shelters” for people in dire straights. I’ve found there is nowhere for these people to go.
There are emergencies that arise that can displace people in our community, and we do not have many options to help these people.
Imagine a family in crises who has nowhere to go in the middle of the night. Law enforcement has few options, although they do handle it, it would be nice if they already knew where to take them. A safe, peaceful, genuine resource that can provide shelter and assist the family on the next steps needed to move forward.
There are numerous reasons people get displaced, but not many local resources that show the genuine love this community already has for its residence.
We live in a very genuinely caring community, and I would like to pool our resources and step up our ability to help those in need.
This year, Kellilynnes Spiritual Recovery Center would like to build an emergency shelter to accommodate our community in assisting people in crisis. I’ve already done the math and we are looking at an additional $20,000 to add this building to our facility. It won’t be the Ritz-Carlton by any means, but it will serve its intended purpose as a temporary crisis shelter.
What I’m in need of is someone who is looking to serve their community, and assist me with fundraising. This year we are looking beyond our own means and stepping up to the challenge of making a positive impact in our community.
There is a lot to do to make this happen. If you are able to help, or would like to get involved, please contact me on messenger or call me at 425-359-0028.
Financial donations can be made at Harvestvisionministries.org and under “purpose of gift” select “Kellilynnes Spiritual Recovery center.”
Thank you and may God continue to bless our community.
