“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? …Let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.”
– 1 John 3:17-18
STORIES FROM THE LAMB CENTER
Our time with our guests gives us a personal view on the local need to address homelessness. The men, women and young people that we’ve met inspire us to action, progress and, often times, solutions. Every one of them has a story worth sharing.
“Lord, thank you for waking us up this morning with your finger of love and for giving us breath. Thank you for my Tuesday job at the library. I’ve had it for 3 years. Thank you for The Lamb Center and thank you for being such a great big God and for being my power of authority!”
– A Lamb Center Guest
THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT
We serve and assist 30,000 guest visits every year. We see each person as an individual, get to know them by name, and assist them as we are able. In order to more effectively help the people we serve, we want to more intensely serve them so they can get back on their feet more quickly.
More Services in 2015
Every year, we set ambitious goals to raise more money and help people more effectively. As we grow, so does our vision. We plan to offer even more services by 2015 such as increased case management and counseling services, and more intensive services to more effectively address the homeless crisis.
Hope and a Future Campaign
To have truly sustainable homeless services, we need to ensure that we can adequately serve our guests and provide the services and counseling they need to get back on track. We’re working on raising money to purchase a larger facilitate and re-locate so we can make an even greater dent in homelessness. Donate now.
