Thank you to all who hosted Interfaith Hospitality Network (GAIHN) families in our church June 11-25. As you can see from the names listed below, it takes many hands and smiling faces to share hospitality with our guest families. If you would like to help with our host week December 17-24, please contact our church IHN coordinator Mary Pyett at mary@pyett.net.

United Ministries also passes along their thanks:

Because of your support, we continue to pursue our mission 
to serve and empower those on the transformative journey
to self-sufficiency. Let me share with you one story of someone 
helped recently in GAIHN:

We have a grandmother who became homeless and joined
our program in March. The grandmother is caring for four
grandchildren, a 10-year-old granddaughter and three
grandsons ages 9, 13, and 14. Another grandson age 15 went
to stay with his father. The mother is now in prison, and the
fathers are not in the picture. This grandmother is trying to
keep the family together and lives on a very limited income.
On April 13, we moved the family to one of our shelter
houses. The grandmother will look for permanent housing for
them. These children are blessed to have a grandmother who
will raise them. Grandmothers are special people.

We could not provide these opportunities without the support
of people like you. Your compassion and generosity help
to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to thrive in
Greenville. You can read more participant stories on our blog
