Holy Trinity Outreach Ministry - 2018 Community Support Report
2018 has been a busy year for our Outreach Ministry. This is one example of the families that we were able to help. We recently helped a young woman with 3 children whose husband left her. She was working full time and was recently laid off from her job. Her husband was mandated by the courts to pay child support and has not paid a cent. She is in a job training program doing her best to find a job before her unemployment runs out. She fell behind in her rent; her landlord has been very understanding and has allowed her to pay a small amount each week toward her back rent. We connected her with Community Care Alliance for other needs as well as the food pantry at Holy Trinity. We were able to help her with $200 toward her rent. She was so grateful, though it wasn’t the answer to all her problems it boosted her spirits. This is what we have done with your support this year (January to December 2018)
We provided support to families in need in our community, This includes rental, utility and medication support. We network with other agencies in the city. Our support comes from the Outreach collection boxes at the entries to the church, donations from the community and proceeds from the Holiday Bazaar. Thank You for your continued generosity
