The Impact of Family Promise Stability Builders
In 2020, the Stability Builders Network and Family Promise:
- ended homelessness for 103 families;
- prevented homelessness for 601 families;
- provided stability services to 2,674 families!
The impact of our coordinated community response to end and prevent homelessness in Hendricks County has tripled in the last 12 months! It might be hard to comprehend the desperation, depth and volume of need in our community, but it is here and we are so grateful for your partnership ensuring everyone has a home they can afford and the opportunity for stability.
The Family Promise 2020 Stability Builders Impact report is attached and additional information can be found here.
Family Promise is providing FREE tax filings during February and March. Please share the attached flyer or here.
I Want to Serve!
Garden Of Eatin' Missions Garden
The Garden of Eatin' has been officially closed for the season. The Garden of Eatin' had a fantastic year after a very wet spring.
All of this is grown organically and maintained by a few faithful Calvary gardeners and delivered to Messiah Lutheran's Food Pantry on Saturday mornings.
Here is what your donations of money, seeds and time created:
30 gallons of yellow beans
25 gallons of yellow squash
20 gallons of cucumbers
10 gallons of carrots
5 gallons of lettuce and spinach
4 gallons of radish
3 gallons of beets and turnips
bunches of basil
1 gallon of tomatoes
One great way Calvary has utilized our vast property and campus is the Garden Of Eatin’ located just behind the playground at the back of the church building. As the garden continues to grow (literally!), new volunteers are needed to keep it watered, weeded and overall maintained.
All of the produce grown goes to local food pantries, particularly in support of Messiah Lutheran.
