HCCO Families, Friends, and Supporters,
Christian Community Outreach (CCO) in Henderson County is a special ministry created to respond with dignityand concern to persons whose urgent needs for food, housing and medication are not being met. Henderson Christian Community Outreach has been a pillar in the Henderson County Community since 1986. We have been blessed beyond belief with support from our local churches and businesses, United Way, and private donors through the years. We have a STRONG volunteer base each month
Our agency is in year 34. Never have we experienced a year like 2020. In January, during our annual dinner, I presented our theme, scripture and movie for the 2020 year.
THY WILL BE DONE ~ The body of Christ, or the people that are the whole humanity, are a team. The body is not supported by one person, but by all of us. We are one; we are strongest working together in unity. Teamwork is the key to living life in harmony, so that we can do God’s will.
Our Outreach families, along with many other Henderson County families, have been devastated by COVID-19.
From January through July, Christian Community Outreach provided food pantry orders to 3,031 families. CCO has assisted 146 families with utilities, 155 families with rent, 11 clients with medication, 27 families with emergency gas and 65 families with other emergency needs. Through July our client assistance totals $158,687.
In addition to our Outreach numbers, this agency also administered the Henderson Employee Relief Fund. This fund was established to help families separated from employment as a result of COVID-19. The “HERF” Fund Applications totaled 768. Two hundred thirty four families received utility assistance. Housing or Rental assistance was provided to 471 families. Other assistance was provided to 42 families. Twenty one applications were denied for various reasons. Funds provided to Henderson County families totaled $395,095.
As we continue the year while COVID-19 wreaks havoc on all of us, our agency needs and appreciates all of your support (financially, emotionally and spiritually)
Blessings to all,
