Life transformation continues to be the center of everything we do at Flood. Our ultimate goals are to help clients make the transition from homelessness and to give them the opportunity to begin a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. Flood is having its most fruitful year ever and the Southeast Ministry Center has become an integral part of this growth. Our anticipated outcomes are nothing short of phenomenal.
We plan a 33 percent increase in the number of individuals reached, impacting over 4,000 lives through crisis intervention, linking to medical services and substance abuse support. This, plus thousands of food packs, meals and essential services, provides access to building meaningful relationships. Finally, we are on track for 100 guests to gain and retain housing.
