Here are some of the needs that Urban Purpose was able to provide for those that we serve throughout the month of February:
355 plates of food
54 nights in recovery
8 counseling sessions
11 nights in crisis housing
150 women’s hygiene kits
100 bags of warm items
Thank you to everyone who was a part of meeting these needs this month! We’re looking forward to what all Urban Purpose will be able to provide for the poor and hurting in March.
One event we have been looking forward to is our Appreciation Dinner. On Thursday, March 10th, we will be hosting everyone that has been a part of the ministry over the last six years. Whether you’ve volunteered, financially supported, prayed for, or helped us in any way, we want to thank YOU! You’re invited to come out and celebrate all the Lord has done over years in and through Urban Purpose. Check out the info below and we look forward to seeing you there!
Throughout the month of January, 2016, we were able to fulfill many needs for the men and women we work with. Here’s what you helped us provide:
497 plates of food
9 Counseling Appointments
37 nights of crisis housing
2 Dr. Appointments
4 Filled Prescriptions
70 hours of temporary work
Also, 72 volunteers joined us on Sundays and we had 2 people spend a total of 62 nights in recovery programs. All of these things were able to be done because of you that support our ministry on a regular basis. We could not do this without you!
January was an awesome month and we’re really excited about what’s going to happen this month. On top of normal work, we have two exciting events that are around the corner in February.
This Sunday, we are hosting a Super Bowl party at Shades Mountain Baptist Church, where we will bring some of our homeless friends from downtown to eat, watch the game, and laugh at the commercials.
At the end of the month, we’ll be participating in the Global Impact Celebration at Shades. This will be a chance for us to tell more people our story and to be encouraged and loved by this church family who greatly supports our ministry.
These events will serve as a way that we can build relationships with the people we work with and also our supporters and partners from a local church. All of this will be while we continue to daily walk with those struggling to get their lives back on track.
We are hopeful as we look forward to what the Lord has planned for this month and we’re excited to tell you about a great February!
