What Can the Faith Community Do About Affordable Housing?
A wonderful movement is underway within the faith-based community here in Clark County. Faith Partners for Housing (FP4H) is an organization of churches and faith-based organizations that came together in 2016 to work on long term solutions to homelessness, and St. Anne’s is one of FP4H’s newest member congregations. The FP4H mission is to create safe, affordable and decent housing for working families, seniors and people with disabilities. A home for everyone, a tent for no one. Want to learn more?
Find out how to get involved:
1. Speak to Mary Tipton, who leads our ministry to the un-housed at St. Anne’s.
2. Get on the FP4H mailing list to receive updates.

Take Action: JOIN THE POOR PEOPLE'S CAMPAIGN
When 1 in 2 Americans is poor and the news of the day is climate chaos, police brutality, foreign wars, and tax cuts for the wealthy, we need Dr. King’s “revolution of values” and a moral revival in America more urgently than ever. It’s time not to commemorate Dr. King’s work,
but to complete it.
The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is uniting tens of thousands of people across America to challenge the evils of systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation and the nation’s distorted morality. We need to step up and join efforts.
Add your name now if you’re ready to help unite all Americans in our movement to transform the political, economic and moral structures of the country. Can you join and take action? Click here: http://poorpeoplescampaign.org/?source=autoemail Thanks!
