How Donations Help
Loaves and Fishes Ministries is grateful for your crucial financial support. Through your giving, we annually provide 3,660 bed-nights along with 7,300 hot meals and individualized advocacy support for guests in our temporary Overnight Shelter.
In the longer term Transitional Housing programs, which provide the option of housing and advocacy services for up to two years, in 2011 we served six men at Luke’s House for individual men. In Zacchaeus House for moms with children, we served five women and eight children.
A significant amount of revenue for Loaves and Fishes Ministries comes from your individual contributions. You are our “support line” towards meeting the needs of the homeless we serve.
