Anderson Foundation Grant for Elderly Care
$15,000 will be matched for our new elderly care programs
We are still in the process of setting up the services and figuring out the nuts and bolts of the program. Our team of community connectors will personally pick up and deliver food and personal care items to homes. Ciudad Nueva will also offer resource connection services to ensure that elderly community members are able to access whatever they may need in the area. On top of that, our connectors will do exactly that — connect. Staying at home to quarantine takes a lot of work, emotionally and spiritually. The elderly sacrifice their family time and social activities to stay home and maintain their health. We plan to reach out to this population regularly, while physically social-distancing, to minister through personal connections. We want to keep the loneliness at bay while helping them to stay healthy.
Finally, we have received a grant that provides funding toward a van! This van will serve as the vehicle to transport groceries and personal care items to and from homes. End-of-year donations will be matched up to $15,000 to help cover the costs of this van. We are praying for financial blessing to carry us through these new expenses, and for God to do His work through these new services next year.
As we approach the new year, please pray that God uses Ciudad Nueva’s elderly services to reach more people for Christ. It is our earnest desire that through these new offerings, we will be able to give the kind of hope and love that only He can provide.
