BELOVED MERCY MINISTRIES
SERVING GROVE CITY AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT
AMOUNT DONATED: $12,263.95
BeLoved Mercy Ministries(BMM) was established to address the need of families experiencing homelessness in the Grove City school district. The struggle with homelessness is particularly challenging in Grove City because there is not easy access for services. Most available assistance is at least twenty minutes away. BMM's mission is to provide dignified short-term housing as a bridge to restore long term hope and self-sufficiency to the lives of our neighbors most in need.

Programs Supported by Your Donations
Families referred to BMM are evaluated, and their specific needs assessed. We conduct background checks and drug screenings. Once BMM has accepted a family, a case is opened and monitored to track progress towards clearly identified goals. Guidance on finances, education, employment, and day to day living are provided to the family through BMM or the family is referred to public services.
Donations will be used to assist homeless families with the following expenses to improve their financial situation, achieve stability, and move out of crisis as quickly as possible.
-Faith and Finance - BMM pays the fee for client to participate in an educational program which is offered by a local agency
-Miscellaneous, diapers, baby needs
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
BeLoved Mercy Ministries current financial situation allows the organization to support one family. We have a mobile home that a family can live in while participating in our program. There have been times that up to four families have been in need of assistance. This support includes covering utility costs, groceries, employment searching, and financial advising.
As multiple families reach out to us, the organization must be selective in who can be assisted. If more funds were available, then more families have the potential to be assisted especially after COVID stimulus money ends.
