IN MEMORY OF TAMI RENE LEAVEN
Our dear friend, Tami, was struck and hit by a car as she tried to bike to find a warm spot to sleep. Her death is tragic and we are deeply broken-hearted. We shared a beautiful memorial service, Wednesday, where we remembered that Tami’s last name–Leaven–is what causes bread to rise. Tami certainly was leaven to our community as she always lifted people up with her smile, her words of encouragement, and her gift of offering companionship. Tami loved life. After the service, we planted a memorial garden for her. Please remember the Leaven family, her friends, and Elivs, her boyfriend in your prayers. Let us all commit to being leaven to the people around us and to working so that everyone has all that they need to survive and thrive.
OUR TRANSITIONAL HOUSING PROGRAM NOW HOUSES PEOPLE FROM THE STREETS.
Our residential community focuses on people who are homeless and are either disabled or ill. These people are particularly vulnerable to the streets and find that their conditions were worsening. Now they find safe space at Beloved and a place where they can heal and grow!
In the midst of the winter cold, we are sharing a sanctuary from the elements for our friends on the streets. We offer a warm space to relax with friends. At our day center, we have place for people to rest, find support, meet basic needs, and find positive community. Your support is needed to continue our work.
