We’ve started a new ministry under Soul Food Café Mission. We believe that it’s our Father’s desire to meet all of his children’s needs. This fund will help meet needs of people in our community. We are met with needs for gas, utilities, and rent payments. There are also situations where individuals are without shelter and this fund will allow us to help them put down a deposit or pay a portion of rent while they are getting on their feet. 100% of donations are going right to the people in need. We are having them fill out a form to track where the money is going and this is available for donors to view at anytime. We plan to provide shelter in the near future but this is where we are starting for now.
