Hope Center Update

After the Global Holiday Faire, we received a lovely thank you letter from Lynn Epp, the Amador Street Hope Center board chair, member of the Faire organizing committee, and friend of the church. She updated us on the work of the Hope Center in 2022 with a look ahead to an exciting new program coming soon.

“Greetings! The Hope Center is in full swing. The number of people we’ve served this year 2022, totals well over 15,000 — 15,546 to be exact. Your faithful support through the proceeds from the Global Holiday Faire has allowed us to do that. Thank you for this most recent check of $835!… For our first year back after COVID, the Faire was very successful - especially since it was a rainy day!

Our Assistant Director, Donisha Patterson, is doing so much to help the community with our usual fresh produce, meat, boxed and canned foods.

S.O.S. - Solano Options & Support now offers medical help by appointment on Tuesdays. It offers substance use treatment & recovery support services.

Hope Cafe will be opening in February - free soup and sandwiches at first, which may be consumed in the Fellowship Hall or ‘to go.’

Thank you again, for your support.”

It is quite impressive how much the Hope Center has accomplished and we should be proud that we are a part of that!      

Advent Collection

During Advent we collected socks and underwear to donate to the Mobile Shower ministry at Lighthouse Covenant Church. They have been bringing the shower unit to many locations & encampments in Vallejo over the last year for those who do not have access to showers and hygiene care. Lighthouse Covenant only manages the shower unit, not the hygiene donations. The donations will be given to Vallejo Together who will designate them for use for Mobile Basic Needs Community-Based Response (CBRs) that provide showers/hygiene kits at Transitions Village/Central Vallejo, Faith Food Fridays/Central Vallejo, Boys and Girls Empowerment Group/North Vallejo and Mt Calvary/Couch St. 

We have multiple baskets and boxes full of socks, underwear, and undershirts which will make a big impact on those who receive them! These items will be delivered in the new year.

A big thank you to everyone for your donations!!
