Covenant Ministry is gearing up to hold their annual Beauty from Ashes Spring Yardsale and are seeking item donations from the public. Almost anything will be accepted and donors are asked to call Marci at 479-234-0927 for where and when to bring your goods. The proceeds will benefit Covenant Ministries, which provides an array of services to at risk women, children, and families.
Through Covenant House, homeless individuals and families can receive housing for up to 30 days in a safe, secure refuge. Covenant Ministry also assists in plans of action for family health and stability, in obtaining supplemental assistance, as well as transitioning women and their children into the Aliyah House Program, and assist in acquiring more permanent housing.
In 2016, Covenant Ministries was able to provide shelter to 18 families due to a partnership with the Polk County Housing Authority. They were also able to assist eight families in finding permanent homes and five families in finding stable employment.
Covenant Ministry has a need for food and household items year round to continue to assist families. For more information on how you can help, contact them at (870) 389-6311.
