Update on the Future Ministry to Women and Children

The past six months have brought us to two important milestones on this journey. Through the contributions of current and new donors, we have already raised 90% of our goal in the Good Neighbor campaign. We are also exploring a possible location for the transitional housing center for women and children.

Many individuals, churches, and businesses in the community have given generously to support the campaign. It has been encouraging to hear such positive feedback as we seek to provide this need for women and children in Lenawee County.

Since we are so close, we have set a goal of Thanksgiving Day to get to 100%. Here are ways you can help:

  • Pray: Join us in prayer for this important need.
  • Give: Make a monetary donation online or mail a check to P.O Box 918 Adrian, MI 49221
  • Renovate A Room: Your tax-deductible gift of $2500 will help provide the materials needed to renovate a room for a homeless family in Lenawee County. A plaque with the name of your choice will be displayed on that room for one year. We have had nearly half of the 25 rooms sponsored already by churches and individuals!
  • Share: this message with your family, friends, and on social media. Follow our Facebook page, share posts, and join the conversation.

A Possible Location

For the past 18 months, we have been exploring properties for the transitional housing center that will provide for homeless women and children in Lenawee County. The former Herrick Manor in Tecumseh has been offered as a possible site for the new women’s and children’s ministry.

This property could provide up to 25 units, allowing us to help families from all over Lenawee County with a robust program that fully engages mothers and their children in school, jobs, mentoring, and volunteering.

On Tuesday, the Tecumseh Planning Commission approved a similar use plan that will go before the Tecumseh City Council in November. If approved in November, we can develop further usage and site plans as required by the planning commission.

We are very excited about this opportunity and ask you to join us in prayer for this important need in Lenawee County.
