Grants and proposals – currently the outreach Ministry is writing proposals large and small, that will allow this organization to receive additional funding, in order to achieve our long term goals. The hope is to obtain funding, to rent or to own a building large enough to serve as an avenue for the homeless to use according to a population need. Several ideas consist of a storage facility or locker format for personal items. The current Information Resource program will expand. There is also a vision for an electrical charging center for wheelchairs, mobile breathing machines and cell phone charging.
