FPC BEACON is very enthusiastic about its new and growing relationship with Habitat Newburgh. Our church’s mission is to “bridge worlds, encounter God and heal lives”. Working with and supporting Habitat fulfills that mission.
Newburgh has a population of just under 30,000 and, unfortunately, is considered to be the most distressed urban area in New York. 40% of the children under 18 live in poverty and the crime rate, per capita, is the highest in New York State.
Habitat provides a “hand up” rather than a “hand out”. We would appreciate your support as we work with Habitat toward a common goal of strong neighborhoods and dignity through homeownership.
Please consider that $25 purchases electrical outlets and switches-giving power to new dreams while $50 purchases a 25lb. box of nails-helping to hold it all together!
Thank you for your support!
