JUSTA Center Receives Support
JUSTA Center Executive Director Wendy Johnson was the speaker at the October 10, 2019 TNT. She shared how difficult it is to be a homeless Senior and live on the streets.
As a Senior on the streets you are subject to being robbed, beaten up, having their documents taken, not eating, and losing their medication to drug addicts. Homeless Seniors are the fastest growing age bracket of homeless people in the United States. The JUSTA Center is the ONLY Day Center in the U.S.A. that focuses on the care of Seniors. They help them get back on the road to finding and staying in a home that will fit their needs.
Bill Kolb, the representative from the Lakeview Foundation, presented Wendy Johnson with a check for $1,500 to assist with their current needs. Betty Stewart, Chairwoman of the Mission and Outreach Committee, presented Wendy Johnson with a number of checks from Lakeview members totaling over $500.
The JUSTA Center is close to the hearts of members of the senior community here at Lakeview
“Except for the Grace of God – there go I.”
We are all very close to homelessness and it is good to know that great people are out there doing something about this huge societal problem.
Habitat Fall 2019 Comes to a Close
October 6 brings the official end of Lakeview UMC Missions and Outreach Committee’s Habitat for Humanity campaign for this year. Thank you to each of you for helping those in need in our local community secure adequate housing for their families.
Those who still have coin bank houses to turn in or wish to make contributions via check to Habitat for Humanity please feel free to do so as soon as possible so that we can get a campaign total to submit to Habitat for Humanity in support of their efforts. We hope to report the final total raised in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for that.
Again, thank you for your contributions toward our Habitat for Humanity campaign and your continued support of Lakeview UMC’s missions and outreach.
