JOY Ministries asks for help for local homeless families

This ministry asks for pledges of $5 per month from all the families above the poverty line to provide help with rent, utilities, shelter, food, clothing and toiletries to residents in our area living on the edge of homelessness or already in a state of homelessness. Pick up a "Families for $5" pledge card on the square or at the Adair County Public Library.

By Linda Waggener

There are many ways to share with others in need, but J.O.Y. Ministries is making an appeal which directly helps Adair County families. It is also a support base for the churches of Adair County which frequently are the first to know of an individuals’ need for help.

J.O.Y. Ministries has announced their Families for $5 Campaign to run through January, 2017. Director of Finances, Maggie Coleman, says, "We are hoping to raise $450 more per month in income to cover the demand for help from those in crisis during the winter months. We will use the money to provide help with rent, utilities, shelter, food, clothing and toiletries to residents in our area living on the edge of homelessness or already in a state of homelessness."
