Thank you for praying for us!
All St. Matthew’s House staff are safe, and all facilities are still standing with some water and structural damage. We thank God for sparing us from a category 5 storm and the worst-case storm surge that had been forecast. Thank you for praying for us.
Our shelters are open for meals, and we have had hundreds of people in our care during the storm. As soon as power is restored, we can let staff return to open the thrift stores and other social enterprises.
We need your help.
Over the years, we’ve put in place a funding stream to lessen our dependency on monetary donations. And, since we do not depend upon government funding, we rely upon our social enterprises to help fund the organization. All of our social enterprises were shut down for several days due to the lack of power.
Our goal is to come up with an emergency funding stream during this time of crisis. Under normal circumstances we need over $1 million a month to operate, yet the needs of the ministry have significantly increased due to Hurricane Irma. September is typically our leanest month of the year for donations.
Won’t you consider coming alongside us to serve most vulnerable in our community?
