OUTREACH UPDATE

CITY MISSION SOCIETY AND HABITAT FOR HUMANITY FROM YOUR CHRISTIAN SERVICE SUPPORT BOARD

The outreach activity of our church has continued despite the Covid-19 pandemic. The members of the Christian Service Support Board (CSSB) have remained in touch with the organizations which we have supported financially. Here are reports from two of those organizations.

 

City Mission Society continues its “A Lift Up” program which helps families remain in safe housing and provides counseling to women by running Zoom workshops and holding one-on-one sessions in specific cases. They locate computers if needed for home schooling and provide education about the eviction moratorium. They have served 438 families since April 2, including Spanish and Portuguese speakers. They are not able to provide child care. They provide grocery cards rather than a food pantry. They plan to add a summer social justice intern and they continue training seminarians using Zoom programs. They pointed out that Hills Church supported their effort during the Spanish flu epidemic of 1919 — 101 years ago!

 

Habitat for Humanity had to cancel its scheduled June build, but have scheduled a build for us to participate in on September 26. They plan to begin with only one or two workers while they decide how to host volunteer groups, including distancing, handwashing, personal protection, etc. They expect to complete a house in Holliston in December and may begin a new one in Worcester.
