Did You Know?

We at 25:35 Ministries estimate that 90% of the homeless population in the areas we serve are homeless due to mental illness or addiction and 10% due to financial loss or inadequate earnings.

Many think of people experiencing homelessness as those living in parks or streets. However, the homeless may be temporarily housed as well. While many live under bridges or in parks, others have temporary housing with friends, at homeless or night shelters, or even in their vehicles..

What We Need

In addition to donating cash, we have an urgent and ongoing need for essential items. Please prayerfully consider donating to this important cause.
