Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and
mighty things, which you do not know.
Jer 33:3 NKJV
Serving as Jesus' hands to the world
Our Action Statement
Helping the Homeless Come Home
Shepherd's Haven of Bath, Inc is a non-profit Christian
organization being
the hands of Jesus, caring for the needy in the Bath, NY area. We
need your
help! We are still in the fundraising process to fund the opening of
an
adequate shelter that will provide a transitional, safe haven for the
homeless
and poor families and individuals in and around the Bath vicinity.
Do we really need a
shelter?
For I was hungry and you gave me food: I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and
you took me in;
I was naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you visited me; I was in prison and you came to me.
Matt 25:35-36 NKJV
YES! Although there are numerous services that residents are fortunate to receive, may are still
classified as homeless in the area. As a central location, Bath is an ideal area for a homeless ministry
to be located. In New York alone, there are over 69,000 homeless individuals, based on the 2006 US
Department of Housing and Urban Development reports. Over 500 individuals needed assistance with
homelessness and/or housing issues in 2008 in Bath alone. Current fundraising project is the
ongoing drive to raise funds to purchase the land and to build the actual shelter building.
You can help support us, by sending us your tax-deductible donation to:
