Help the Homeless Beat the Heat

The summer is hot!

We think about pets during the hot summer and we act

During the summer, we think about our pets getting overheated, and we act!

But what about the homeless?

Homeless in the Heat

When you are homeless, you have no place to escape the heat.

summer sun No protection from the damaging rays of the sun.

summer sun Limited access even to water.

Summer at Streets Alive Mission

During the hot summer months, poverty will not be on vacation, nor will we have a relaxed summer schedule at Streets Alive Mission.

In past years, the winter months were generally busier than in the summer. However, today we are experiencing such growth that every day, through the spring and summer, is busier than the one before.

It wasn’t that long ago that our evening meal service was busy if we saw thirty or so people. NOW, 30 people is a slow night, with some evenings serving over 100!

That’s huge growth…. That’s HUGE NEED!

WHY such a great need?

There are so many people in the Lethbridge area struggling with homelessness every day because they no longer can manage their lives.

Whether it’s due to job loss, addiction, or simply struggling to make ends meet — more people than ever are coming to the Mission for help.

The challenge for us is when services to those in need are on the rise, giving is often down.

Help the Homeless “Beat the Heat”

We make every effort to prepare for the summer shortfall, but with record-setting summer temperatures forecast, I know our limits will be tested.

We understand that people are planning vacations, out of normal routines, and away from the monthly reminders in their calendars. This is when your gifts make such a difference.

summer sun Your gift will help people like Samuel escape from the heat for an hour or so while he attends Chapel.

summer sun Your gift will supply water for our SMART Team to distribute on the streets.

summer sun Your gift could easily save a life!

The street population is at extreme risk when temperatures begin to soar. Your gift can help them survive.

Poverty doesn’t take a vacation!

Because you give, our staff and volunteers are ready to provide aid to all who enter our doors. Thank you for being mindful of the fact that homelessness doesn’t take a vacation!
