Home Repair

With a shortage of 90,000 housing units in Alabama and homes that are rapidly deteriorating, we need you! We need your help as we serve families and work as a force in alleviating rural poverty. Families most affected are children and elderly, like Ms. Green… 

Tonight, Ms. Green goes to bed anxious, wondering if the incoming storm will bring heavy rains. At age 62, widowed, and dealing with arthritis, she has staged her pots, pans, and plastic trash cans strategically around her home to catch the unwelcome water. Then she’ll spend the rest of her night listening for the rain and dumping the incoming water her roof should be stopping. You can end this and help Ms. Green get a much better night’s sleep. Extend!

You can be the difference between substandard housing and a secure home for a loving family.

Children’s Ministry

Literacy is only one of the many challenges faced by the children we’ve come to know and love in rural Alabama. Our children’s ministry focuses specifically on improving reading and writing while also teaching leadership, Christian character, and, most importantly, demonstrating God’s love. Kids like Derik are looking for our love and care…

Derik is a young boy living in a single parent family with three siblings and two cousins. Many times he sleeps on the couch and his TV blares in the background. He loves math but struggles to read. Sometimes the words just don’t make sense. His mom is so stressed that although she always says she loves him, she always seems to be yelling too. Life is hard. He wonders if he will make it through high school. But he comes to Sonshine Kids day camp and learns that he is loved by Jesus and many others. You can continue to help him, to restore his hopes and dreams, and to give him an unforgettable summer at day camp! Extend!
