As you know, donations are badly needed to help vulnerable people in need. Whether they are survivors of human trafficking, victims of spiritual abuse, or members of oppressed populations experiencing forced evictions, your contributions can truly be life changing.
Operation Short Creek
Right now our focus is in providing humanitarian support to the FLDS population left in Short Creek (Hildale, UT and Colorado City, AZ). Thanks to so many generous people, we have been able to help people – primarily women and children – find housing, get jobs, receive therapy, get food, clothing and shoes, advance in their education and spread their wings in many ways.
Our current needs revolve around our desire to launch a new school for the FLDS. We have a little one-room schoolhouse now, which is also a resource center, but it is far too small. From 8 to 3, children are able to use the computers and receive specialized instruction to help them catch up in their reading, math and more. After 3, our little facility is available for use by FLDS mothers and others who need help – whether it is searching for housing, applying for jobs, picking up donations, taking classes and more.
We are trying to get a two story FLDS school building called the Edson Academy. We want to renovate it ($35,000) and also fill it with desks, computers, educational materials etc. We will also need to pay utilities of about $2,000 per month. We cannot do this without your help.
