Our campaign is inspired by the Epistle of James 2:18: “I will show you my faith by what I do. ”We ask that you help American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS) raise $1,000,000 over the next year to bring hope and healing to suffering communities.
Since May 2020, we’ve awarded $171,000 in One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) funds for COVID-19 recovery efforts in the United States and Puerto Rico. So far, 61 organizations have received grants for communities in need.
To date, we have received a total of 108 applications requesting over $989,000 in assistance. Therefore, you heal is still desperately needed!
Every $25 will help to support food distribution, financial assistance for students and unemployed persons, infant and child care, and medical aid to homeless persons. It also may be used to provide technology to facilitate academic and community connection.
