YOU can make a difference while renewing hope and rebuilding lives with Martha’s Village & Kitchen. Please join us and help with our Capital Campaign and change lives!
The Renewing Hope, Rebuilding Lives Campaign is a $5 million initiative. It will fund improved Martha’s Village & Kitchen facilities and enhanced programing for Coachella Valley families and individuals who require temporary housing assistance, homeless prevention services, or community resources. Funds are also slated to create a new culinary program to provide food service employment opportunities at area institutions and restaurants and to expand Martha’s licensed Child Development Center.
Father Howard Lincoln, Capital Campaign Chair, said, “Investing in Martha’s Village & Kitchen is an investment in the future of the children who need us the most right here in the Coachella Valley. Martha’s Village & Kitchen helps people to help themselves. We bring them out of despair, and they move into self-sufficiency. When we change one life, we change generations of lives.”
Martha’s Village & Kitchen serves the majority of impoverished and homeless in the Valley. The Renewing Hope, Rebuilding Lives initiative and Capital Campaign hopes to transform lives through innovative programs to prevent homelessness, end the homeless cycle, and ensure a stable future for the most vulnerable in the community.
The initiative’s objectives comprise four major categories:
- Childcare and Child Development
- Food Services
- Culinary/Job Training Program
- Building, Shelter Space Improvements and Safety Upgrades
The funds raised from the Capital Campaign enable us to:
- Move more people from homelessness into independent living
- Provide more assistance to people suffering from extreme poverty
- Facilitate coordination with partner agencies throughout the community
- Operate more efficiently and effectively
