As we head into 2018, we are faced with two significant financial needs:
With the estimated 67,000 people in Cuyahoga County who are dependent on opioids, including prescription painkillers and heroin, our desire is to provide addiction recovery programming and crisis counseling at our new west side location. To duplicate the ministry we are currently providing at our east side location, we need to raise $43,600. This would enable us to expand our staffing and cover the cost of programming, food, and clothing. With nearly a dozen opioid overdose deaths per day in Ohio, the need is urgent. Please help us fight this horrible epidemic. Only Christ, the Living Water, can answer the longings of these thirsty souls. Your generosity equips us to be the hands and feet of Jesus, by His grace and for His glory.
In 2015, True Freedom Ministries was given the privilege of providing chaplains to the Juvenile Justice Center. Joy unspeakable has been the result as God is changing lives! Over the last two years, 24 young men have been baptized at the Juvenile Justice Center. God is using True Freedom to make a daily impact for His Kingdom as at-risk youth are immersed in the Word of Life. $23,000 a year enables us to maintain three chaplains who provide 14 worship services and crisis counseling coverage seven days a week at the center.
Would you prayerfully consider making a special year-end donation to help us continue to meet the needs of the broken in Northeast Ohio?
