Hunger Heroes Food Drive

The increase in inflation, gasoline, utilities, and food is causing a bigger demand for food assistance than ever before. In 2021, 12.5% of families, including children, reportedly suffered from food insecurity. In Omaha alone, 1 in 5 kids will go to bed hungry every night.

Recovery Bibles

Our students learn to apply God’s word and the 12 Steps to their lives. The Recovery Bible does a great job of showing the location of the 12 Steps in the Bible. Would you help provide Recovery Bibles for the men and women in our programs?
