Welcome to Jars of Clay
WE CHANGE LIVES OF PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY HOMELESS YOUTH AND THEIR BABIES
We Change Lives of Homeless People
There are two types of Poverty: Absolute and Relative. Relative Poverty is usually defined by a threshold that is a percentage of the median income or having low income in comparison to the rest of society. Absolute Poverty is not having enough income to afford basic human needs (e.g. food, safe water, shelter, clothing and more). Poverty is still a big problem in the United States, especially for minorities and people living in rural areas. That's why we only serve locally, we will not become a global ministry until our people are taken care of from the homeless youth to the homeless veteran.
We are driven by the belief we are called to be our brother and sisters keeper. Our foundational belief is the Great Commission, knowing that poverty is a very complicated spiritual issue that has components of mental, physical, financial environmental and political aspects that are hard to bind.
HELP US BREAK THE CYCLE OF POVERTY
We are attacking poverty by affording Tiny Homes to the homeless people.
In 2020 we launched our Crowd Funded Tiny Home Project with great enthusiasm (even through the challenge of Covid-19). Just like a habitat build, and under the guidance of a project manager, we put volunteers to work painting, framing, installing insulation, drywall, cabinetry, flooring and decor to transform a container into a state of the art home.
Each volunteer donated a pice of the puzzle (paint or a paint brush, screws or wood, a hammer or a light fixture and just like (1 Corinthians 12:12) the container transformation began. Interested in volunteering? Interested in obtaining a home? Click on the link below to connect with us!
