Dear Editor: FaithWorks has reached a milestone in its service to the community. As of the end of March, FaithWorks has served over 15,000 individuals in Newton County. We thank our sponsoring churches, area businesses, individuals and organizations for their support that has allowed us to provide mortgage/rental and utility assistance to our neighbors in need. We are especially grateful to our volunteers who give their time and talents to benefit others.
When we first started the ministry, we had six churches that committed to send volunteers and funds to assist families in financial crisis. We now have 39 sponsoring churches and 26 volunteers that work with us in the ministry. Applications are accepted at our office located at 7129 Turner Lake Circle on Wednesday and Friday from 9 to 11 a.m. We reopen at 1 p.m. to review and verify information received with the goal of providing assistance the same day. To receive more information about FaithWorks, please call us at (770) 784-1884 or write to us at P.O. Box 2972 Covington, GA 30015.
Again, on behalf of our board and the 15,000 plus individuals we have served, THANK YOU.
