Emergency Assistance Fund

This fund is an active effort by Goshen area congregations aimed at providing financial resources to Goshen residents for emergency needs otherwise unmet through other area agencies.  It is a cooperative fund among these area congregations so that people do not need to go from church to church to get their need met, and so that congregations are less vulnerable to abuse by those who would contact many congregations. First Light Mission, formerly Goshen Interfaith Hospitality Network, graciously provides staff to centrally administer this vital emergency assistance fund. This fund offers a way for congregations to walk alongside low-income people in Goshen and also an opportunity to build relationships.
