Sometimes life is hard. If you are going through one of those hard seasons in your life right now…please know we care.
At Faith in Action we understand that sometimes life can be hard. We’ve experienced those valleys ourselves. That’s why we have programs and services to support individuals and families currently experiencing difficult circumstances. Though we aren’t not able to offer financial assistance, we can offer hope, other services and referrals to other agencies who can.
- Furniture for Families
- Turning Point
- Every Person Matters
As a result of opening our store–The GREAT Room in Elk River–we are able to help families and individuals in need with furniture and household goods. We also have various medical equipment available for use. In 2011 we helped more than 200 households in our service area by providing an assortment of goods and furniture.
If you need (or know of someone who needs) furniture, please call our office at 763-263-4277. We will establish eligibility through an intake process, and work with our volunteers to set up a time to deliver items needed; there is a small fee for the delivery. We have a variety of furniture and goods available, including: beds, couches, tables and chairs, dressers and appliances, as well as housewares, of bedding and other household items. Last year, more than 100 beds were given to children, most who had never had a bed of their own.
Turning Point is a comprehensive program which offers both formal and informal supports to families in need. For more information on Turning Point please click here:
Every Person Matters:
This program serves individuals under the age of 60 who are in need of some assistance to remain living independently. Every Person Matters are:
- individuals living with a disability who need a helping hand
- people going through a rough time in their life who need some encouragement, guidance and/or services to get back on solid ground
- individuals who have ongoing caseworkers from other agencies, but are just in need of some volunteer assistance to remain independent
Whatever your need may be, know that you matter to us!
Please call us at 763-263-4277 for more information.
