All of us at Christian Clearing House are extremely grateful for your support. Your commitment has a positive impact during difficult times for local families with emergency needs. As this global crisis of Covid-19 continues to trickle into Hancock County, YOU, our donors, continue to provide us with the resources that can make an impact on the most vulnerable.
In 2020, all CCH’s fundraising events have had to be cancelled—this has caused great concern for Board members and staff. However the agency seems to be holding tight. We are blessed!
Although our overall request for assistance has decreased due to additional funding from Federal and State entities, the needs for assistance is certainly on the upward move. These requests are mainly in the form of families needing food, help with rent and keeping utilities connected.
Just this week we had a grandmother come to the office seeking rental assistance. This wonderful woman has taken custody of her four grandchildren, preventing them from being placed in the foster care system. She shared the horrific conditions the children had faced and felt it was her duty to move them into her 2-bedroom home. At CCH, we were able to help with rental assistance, supplied the children with backpacks filled with school supplies, new socks and shoe vouchers. She was asked if the family needed food, but she assured the volunteer her food supply was being provided by the SNAP program. Because of YOU, our donors, CCH is able to provide the resources needed in crisis situations for our neighbors with needs.
Our CCH volunteers and staff listen to the heart wrenching situations faced by so many of our clients. Although governmental agency programming has increased during Covid–19 the need for CCH’s services continue. Volunteers and staff offer suggestions and referrals to help better lives….
Together WE make a difference!
