A TESTIMONY:   "Thank you so much for your kind and generous hospitality!  The welcoming and warm space, laundry, food, sleeping mats, a listening ear ... WOW!  So very grateful!"  —Sheri (Warming Center Coordinator)

OUR STORY:   The Daytime Warming Center provides a space where our homeless brothers and sisters without shelter during winter can gather to get warm, to eat, to socialize, to organize, and to find support in one another and the community.

Journey of Faith will host 35-50 homeless individuals during the Daytime Warmer Center for two weeks in both December 2017 and March 2018. 

HOW YOUR MONEY IS SPENT:  Your donation of $65.37 helps cover the expense of hosting one of our homeless brothers and sisters and provides:  some meals; a hygiene care kit; access to the shower/laundry facility; clean used clothing; and bus tokens.

You can use the "Quantity" field to indicate how much you would like to donate from $1.00-$500.  

Please note that a payment transaction fee (2.9% of the amount donated, plus $.30) is included to process your donation.  The transaction fee will be deducted from your donation.

HOW OUR FAITH COMMUNITY HAS BENEFITED FROM THIS MINISTRY:  The Daytime Warming Center is a collaborative effort organized by MISSIONA2, Washtenaw County, and local faith organizations.  While overnight shelters exist in Ann Arbor, the reality is that during the freezing winter months there are no options for folks without homes during the day, and shelter space is not available to everyone.   

This ministry has probably presented us with our biggest challenge — becoming more of who we claim to be.  God’s deepest work in us is to teach us how to love others.  Love doesn’t mean much until it’s tested by someone who is sometimes, cranky, unclean; making the kind of choices we wouldn't make; and have ended up in circumstances we would never find ourselves in (so we think in our secret thoughts).  "Those other people" are so much "unlike us." 

We've been called to examine our own prejudices and preconceived notions about the "other" and reflect more deeply on what it really means to be open, welcoming and affirming to all people.
