“Remembering the Samaritan woman at the well (John4:4-26), Christ delivers his invitation at each person’s most apparent and greatest need

IMPACT gives an organization the opportunity to provide an invitation.

As a community of faith, we need to be like Christ and meet people where they are in life.

homeless and crisis shelters
Homeless and Crisis Shelters

Most Homeless and Crisis Shelters maintain a list of items they need for the people they serve

Shelters ultimately receive donated items on their lists, however:

They do not receive appropriate items for transient people or people in crisis

They receive used clothing when they need soap or hygiene related products

They do not receive sheets and blankets in sizes appropriate for shelter beds

They receive too much of one thing, nothing of another

Most businesses and organizations prepare kits for international or disaster relief as needed.

Some prepare limited kits for school aged children or specific projects.

Most Shelters or Crisis Centers do not have sufficient staffing to assemble specific “kits”

Coordinate staff and volunteer resources to pre-assemble kits for overwhelmed shelters

Creative Collaboration
