After seven years as guests of North Oaks Church of Christ we needed to pack up and find a new home for our Resource Center. What an adventure!
The Resource Center is our office and the place where our families come for case management, computer access for job search and homework, storage for supplies of all kinds ranging from diapers to deodorant and access to showers and laundry facilities. After hearing of our need we received an invitation from the amazing folks at Heart of the Canyons Church to set up our center in a portable building on their campus in Newhall.
Portable showers are being provided on-site six days a week by by Real Life Church and our friends at Valencia United Methodist Church are making their shower available once a week. Teamwork!
We have had amazing volunteers come to help us pack, move, unpack and set up our new space. We truly appreciate our generous hosts at North Oaks and the many years we spent on their campus. And we cannot say enough about the hearts of gold and Heart of the Canyons! We have been blessed twice over!
Our goal is to find a piece of land in Santa Clarita where we can build a permanent facility to provide services for our local homeless children and their families. We are working closely with local officials and developers to make this dream a reality. In the meantime we continue to partner with our community and our many supporters to make a difference for homeless families 365-days a year.
