BELOVED MERCY MINISTRIES

SERVING GROVE CITY

AMOUNT DONATED: $2,580

BeLoved Mercy Ministries (BMM) was established to address the need of families experiencing homelessness in the Grove City, PA school district area. The struggle with homelessness is particularly challenging in Grove City because there is not any easy access for homeless families to facilities and/or support. The closest aid is a 20-minute drive or more. 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.

While the match program for Giving Week is over, the need doesn't end! Please feel to make a gift at any time.

  Programs Supported by Your Donations  

Families referred to BeLoved Mercy Ministries are evaluated and their specific needs assessed. Once BMM has accepted the family, a client 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 either directly 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.
-Housing (rent)
-Food
-Utilities
-Clothing
-Transportation -- i.e. fuel gift cards if client has a vehicle
-Faith & Finance Program fee -- BMM will pay the fee for clients to attend an educational finance program offered through a local organization
-Miscellaneous -- i.e. diapers, baby bottles

  Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help  

BeLoved Mercy Ministries' current financial situation allows for the organization to support one single family. Over the past four years, there have been times when up to four families have been in need of aid. This support includes covering all utilities, groceries, financial advising, and employment searching. As multiple families reach out to us, the organization must be very selective in who can be helped. If more funds were available, then more families have the potential to be assisted.
