You will not only enjoy a great evening but you will be helping feed and shelter struggling individuals and families in our own community. Because of generous Blue Diamond sponsors like Check on Hold and Family Health Source and Hope Diamond Sponsors like Halifax Health, Stewart Marchman-Act and the Daytona Auto Mall, every dollar raised by other sponsors and those making individual reservations will go to help prevent homelessness among low income families and provide food, shelter and services to homeless individuals and families with children.
Please make your reservations or sponsorship before Friday, April 28th and make sure to ask about the Hope Diamond Sponsorship, by calling Ginny Kent at 386-252-0156, email at firstname.lastname@example.org or online at www.halifaxurbanministries.org.
Halifax Urban Ministries, a faith based 501(C)(3) non-profit corporation, has been serving the community since 1981 with minimal government funding because of generous donations from business, faith and individual donors. We offer Homeless Prevention services throughout Volusia County from 3 service centers and distributed services at 22 locations. These locations offer The Feed a Family Homeless Prevention Program that distributes over 500 tons of food annually, helping keep families living below the poverty line in their homes by reducing their grocery bill, leaving more funds for housing. Our Homeless Intervention services include The HUM Family Shelter, which provides emergency & transitional housing to over 110 families with children each year. Last year we moved 54 families into permanent housing through our Rapid Re-housing Program. In 2017 we will open the Hope Place Family Assistance Center, please visit www.hope.place to learn more. The Bridge of Hope daily hot meal program provides over 96,000 meals to people in need each year. Homeless assistance direct services at the HUM Center include laundry, showers, case management, mail acceptance, ID applications, clothing, and computer access. HUM has forged partnerships with Halifax Health, SMA, Volusia County and area faith groups to provide on-site medical & mental health services, the SAVE Docket Program, cold weather shelters, Traveler’s Aid, prescription and utility & rent assistance.
