Monthly Capital Campaign – The March Capital Campaign is for the Sunrise Homeless Navigation Center in Austin, Texas. The Sunrise Homeless Navigation Center is a recognized leader in innovative solutions to the homeless epidemic in Austin. Sunrise pioneers new collaborations between faith communities, public institutions, non-profits and local government that not only view humanitarian aid as a moral imperative but a key strategy in housing individuals experiencing homelessness. Since our start three years ago, Sunrise has housed over 300 homeless clients. Along with equipping homeless individuals for long-term success, Sunrise offers a variety of humanitarian and health care services. Over 1,100 homeless clients receive mail at Sunrise allowing them the opportunity to receive foods stamps, social security, and safekeep important documents. Additionally, Sunrise offers the only free physical and mental health walk-in clinic in Austin for homeless clients to receive medical/prescription coverage, dental, optical, and more. Sunrise is committed to living out Jesus’ love, serving marginalized communities above & beyond expectation. You can check out their website to learn more about this ministry: http://sunriseaustin.org/homelessness/navigation-center. We will take this offering next week, Sunday, March 24th.
