Communication

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We identify individuals and families in our area that are ready to receive help in their battle with homelessness. Through the weekly homeless outreach and partnership with local churches, we find ideal candidates to receive a life-transforming miracle which will either rescue them from the life on the streets, or it will prevent it. Their miracles come in form of housing assistance, transportation, relocation or prevention. In East Bay, we're seeing a rapid increase of the working class falling through the cracks (due to housing crisis and extremely high cost of living) and we're there to help at least one client every month with a long-term solution.

Charting impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Every month we facilitate a life changing miracle to an individual/family fighting homelessness.

Our strategy is engaging the community at large by calling on $1/month donations. We are 100% volunteer-ran so everything we raise is used toward the program. We have a weekly homeless outreach where we walk alongside our neighbors in need and we get to identify those ready to receive help for further assistance.

We have a large team that has been serving our local neighbors in need for years, we're part of the largest homeless outreach in East Bay and are extremely connected with our community. We come alongside people in need and partner with other organizations and churches to effectively help our clients and utilize all available resources.

Our measuring scale are lives transformed by meeting people's long term needs. Every case is different, most of our miracles are homeless people who are now housed, families who kept their home, people successfully relocated where they have jobs and stable living situations, working people who needed a vehicle to receive better pay to sustain themselves...

We've been running this program for a year, and we already facilitated 15 miracles.
