Beginning at 12pm through Wednesday at 12pm,3e Restoration Inc. is participating in the Give Local 757 campaign where donations are amplified with matching funds and prizes by a local Foundation. In God’s grace, I began 3e Restoration Inc., a registered 501c3 non-profit, of which I serve as President (not-paid, of course).
Since our humble beginning just one year ago:
We have permanently housed eleven (11) friends/families living through homelessness (as an upstart organization!).
We have encouraged,equipped and empoweredfour (4) local Churches that are now walking with nine (9) of our formerly homeless friends toward holistic sufficiency and systemic change through the 3e Restoration Process.
We have formerly trained nineteen (19) different church leaders now capable of leading and implementing the 3e Restoration Process in their local Church.
Four (4) more local Churches are coming on as “partners” to walk with more friends living through homeless toward holistic sufficiency!
We have developed formal partnerships with several Civicorganizations, local businesses and other Social Services/Human Servicesagencies to holistically and systemically alleviate poverty, specifically homelessness, one friend/family at a time.
We now have a full-time Executive Director and volunteer Director of Operations & Marketing (that we would like to hire as the need is there) to lead us in this incredible city-wide movement involving so many, along with our thirteen (13) Board of Directors.
As our work grows so does the demand. We are asked by other local churches and even other municipalities to equip, empower and encourage them, but we lack the organizational capacity to keep up! This is another way of saying we lack resources, both staff and financial, to faithfully move forward. We need to raise money to strengthen each area of our budget: general fund, process development fund and mission fund. Each are crucial if we are to grow.
