Captain Ken Chapman announced a new plan for our emergency shelter and community breakfast and dinner. As we adjust to the new guidelines for social distancing, we are utilizing 20,000 square feet of empty land to create a safe outdoor sleeping area for homeless individuals. This will allow us to continue our emergency shelter services amid COVID-19. We need your help! Below is a list of donations needed to help us maintain this outdoor camp. Please help ONLY IF you are able! God Bless!
All items should be dropped off at the following address:
