Homeless Relief Ministry

Homeless Relief Ministry (HRM) Imagine you have a family, but little or no income to feed or house them. In addition to living in poverty, what if you have disabilities, mental health or substance abuse conditions?  Anything we do in our community to help alleviate homelessness is a life changer for these families.
