Mission Budget Report
A Word About Leadership
You’re reading this because where there is need, you see opportunities for compassionate response. You envision a world in which people love and care for each other, and no one walks away from those in need thinking, “someone else can help them.” So you step in, step up and find a way to help.
How Can This Congregation’s Support Change Lives?
Some Ways Your Support Plays Out In Real Life:
~ Through CWS relief and recovery assistance to communities in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Ohio and Kentucky following a November 2013 outbreak of tornadoes, hail and high winds.
~ Through tools, seeds and microcredit loans for members of CWS-supported agricultural co-ops in rural, poverty-prone communities in Haiti.
~Through the 11,400 CWS Blankets sent to relief agencies and churches in New York, New Jersey, West Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania for people impacted by Hurricane Sandy. And through CWS disaster-recovery workshops attended by more than 1,200 in affected communities.
~ Through fishing boats that are helping fisherman build sustainable livelihoods and provide for their families.
