Monthly Ministry Updates for April
Family Emergency Assistance
This team provided rental assistance for 15 households during April many of whom owed for several months. We distributed funds for rent assistance in the amount of $112K. ACCA was also awarded with $1.4M in rent assistance through Fairfax County which the Family Emergency team will distribute.
The furniture teams worked April 9 and 30 making 5 deliveries serving 14 individuals. A new baby received a brand new crib mattresses and will soon receive a new crib. Thanks to the support and dedication of Doug Mairena, Jorge Lopez, Jim Dillon and Steve Hershner for their help in cleaning, sorting, and organizing the furniture warehouse.
Neighbor to Neighbor
During Ramadan, Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N) families and volunteers met virtually on April 9 and 23. Our next in person meeting will be on May 14 at Peace Lutheran. We are in the process of making plans for the summer. We have an ongoing need for tutors who have an ESL background and others who would like to volunteer with our program. Contact Nadia Fitzcharles (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
