Explain connection to The United Methodists Church

Five members of our current board are members of Bee Creek United Methodist Church. Bee Creek UMC is a major donor for the operation of the ministry.
The ministry managed a house on church property to provide temporary housing to families who would otherwise be homeless. This partnership was ended in early 2021 due to the deteriorating condition of the house.
The ministry partners with Bee Creek UMC at Christmas to provide client families with Christmas gifts through the Angel Tree program.
