This year we are supporting two of our local mission partners throughout the Lenten season.

Safe and Sound (formerly Women’s Resource Center)

We will collect financial donations to support the Safe House Resident’s Fund which is used for emergency needs for residents. Safe and Sound continues to operate a women’s shelter in a property which belongs to BRPC for those escaping domestic abuse. This invaluable ministry provides healing and hope to women and children who often leave their homes with very few possessions and provides shelter and services to these families as they begin to rebuild their lives. Our Lenten offering will support the Safe House Resident’s Fund which is used to help residents with emergency needs. Please mark “Safe and Sound” on the memo line of your check or on your envelope.
