Micah — CVC Charity Spotlight

MicahMicah Ecumenical Ministries is a Fredericksburg non-profit focused on assisting the chronically homeless, who often face barriers such as mental health, disabilities, substance abuse, and loss of supportive relationships. These barriers limit their access to assistance resources. “The ministry at Micah seeks to overcome such barriers by bringing the community together in a holistic approach that serves all of our neighbors’ needs.” Micah is having great success reducing the number of street homeless in our community. In fact, in 2013 Micah supported 137 people in permanent housing and increased the income of 87 individuals. As a result of their work, the number of street homeless in our community has decreased by 49% in the last four years, and Micah is being recognized across the state as a leader in the nationwide effort to reduce, and ultimately end, homelessness. As the holidays approach and the tax year comes to a close, consider giving to one of the CVC charities.  If you choose to support Micah, please use CVC # 3353. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Lori at 540/654-1105 or lizykows@umw.edu. Thank you all, and best wishes for the holidays!
