Helping the children
Dear Friends of Harbor House,
We are grateful to each of you who contributed to our fundraiser this month! We raised over $50,000 in a very short span of time. Thank you for every single donation that contributed to this great success. We plan to use these funds to assist with motel rooms for those who are living on the streets
during the difficult winter months. While we still have a number of the elderly and those with disabilities in the Project Room Key program, there are still many who are sleeping on the streets.
Currently in Conejo Valley there are 225 children who attend our school
district who are homeless. These children sleep in cars, share bedrooms with extended family or friends, or jump from motel room to motel room. They go to school in the morning having had less sleep, less to eat, and all the hopes and dreams of any child in America. We make it our work to know these children and their stories and our staff works hard to help these families get housed.
We have over 350 families adopted for the holidays and names are still coming in. We are working with local houses of faith to get each family adopted. If you would like to help a family in need with gifts and food for the holidays, please sign up with our Adopt-a-Family program.
We get calls daily to help families and those struggling to pay their rent and utilities, and keep food on the table. We continue to hand out lunches and dinners at Holy Trinity between 4:30 to 5:30pm daily.
As always, none of this would be possible without each of you. It doesn’t matter what we ask you for, but always you show up. We are deeply grateful to have your partnership in this important work.
I pray that if you are not already contributing to this work and those who are affected by it, you will consider making this a cause you support. And, as always, we continue to ask God to heal what is broken, redeem what has been lost, and to help us to Heal the World.
