40 Days of Change For Change

With little more than the price of a daily cup of coffee, your church or school can help build a home for a poor family through collective Christian sacrifice. By setting aside 90 cents per day from 100 families for the 40 days of Lent, your church or school can share in the sacrificial spirit of Lent.

During the 40 days of Lent, your congregation or school can provide a single-unit home complete with a door that locks, windows, a solid floor and roof, and sanitation for only $3,600 for a poor family in need.

A Food For The Poor home offers safe shelter to a desperately poor family and keeps their children safe from wind, storms and strangers who could hurt them. Sacrificial giving offers your parishioners another means to share God’s love.

Once your church or school raises enough money to build a home, you can use this link to mail a check or you can give online. When the home, built by your church or school’s sacrificial generosity, is completed, we will send you a photo of the family you have helped in front of their new home, along with a certificate of appreciation that you can share with your church or school family.
