Healthy Giving

Most of us want to help those we see living in the streets, but have trepidations as to whether the help will be used in a healthy way. The Healthy Giving Council can help you help the homeless in a way that is much more productive than a few dollars or providing a single meal. The council is made up of concerned citizens, faith leaders, social service providers, neighborhood stakeholders, businesses, local government and individuals who were homeless and its goal is to promote healthy and sustainable giving. We’ll hear more from Pastor Jerome Parker, who is part of the council.
