Carpenter’s Church, it seems, has completed their building project for their Housing First ministry. I heard of it early last week when one of our street friends came to jail and told me she was going to be assigned one of the apartments later this month. Sure enough, the story is picked up in the local media (see it here). This means that several (I think about a dozen) homeless people of Lubbock will actually have a place to call their own this winter!
Yay! This is big news – at least for a few. And I, for one, am grateful for the blessing. I thank God regularly for the good work that is done down there at Carpenter’s Church. This achievement definitely is news-worthy, and I hope it gets a lot of attention and has even a fraction of the “success” other cities are claiming with their Housing First programs.
Thank You, Jesus!
