Client financial assistance totaled $20,000 through the Heartland Community Church Compassion Fund, regular monthly giving by Hillcrest Covenant Church and cash gifts by individuals.
Bibles and workbook purchases totaled almost $10,000 through Heartland Community Church Missions Fund purchases, College Church of the Nazarene Missions Fund cash donation, Colonial Presbyterian Church Missions Fund purchases, Colonial Presbyterian Women’s Retreat collections, regular monthly cash gifts by Hillcrest Covenant Church and cash gifts by individual donors. Our volunteers had one on one discussions with over 1,100 male and over 400 female inmates and distributed over 750 Recovery Bibles and 450 class workbooks.
Members of Colonial Presbyterian Church, Heartland Community Church, and Westside Family Church provided roughly $12,000 in Christmas gifts and Backpacks to over 200 children of the incarcerated.
Hillcrest Covenant Church’s monthly giving covered the entire amount of GP’s $3,500 operating expenses; which amounted to only 8% of our total expenditures. Therefore, 100% of all other giving by our church partners and individual sponsors went directly for client assistance (bibles, workbooks, housing, clothing, transportation, medical, dental, etc.).
Thank you to our partnering churches and our faithful individual financial supporters. You are making a huge difference in our community by helping the incarcerated and their families.
