Bristol Faith in Action
Bristol Faith in Action is so very grateful for the funding provided by Speedway Children's Charities. Children are our future! This united outreach ministry of over forty member churches is actively engaged in helping families with children. Assistance is available for utilities, utility deposits, rent, rent deposits, prescriptions, food, local city bus transportation, and debt/budgeting counseling. Bristol Faith in Action also serves as a referral service for those needing assistance outside the scope of our mission.
Of the 3,061 households assisted during 2008, 49% of those households had children in the home. The needs of families continue to outpace available resources here at Bristol Faith in Action. Funding from Speedway Children's Charities has a significant impact on our ability to help. When housing is stabilized, heating utilities can be maintained, and children can have needed nutrition, Speedway Children's Charities is enabling Bristol Faith in Action to ensure a brighter future for the children of our community.
