Community Kitchens of Birmingham

 

 

Community Kitchens serves a lunch meal 365 days per year from St. Andrews and Grace Episcopal Church in Woodlawn. Annually this amounts to over 95,000 meals served to help stop hunger.  The doors to Community Kitchens are open to all. No one is required to attend a religious service, rich or poor are equally welcome-they only need to be hungry. Those we serve are our ”guests” and we strive to treat them as such.   Community Kitchens is governed by a community-based Board of Directors and is recognized by the IRS as a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization.  All donations to Community Kitchens are tax-deductible.  Support for Community Kitchens comes from a wide array places including faith based organizations, schools and universities, corporations, businesses and individuals. Community Kitchens is actively involved in local coalition groups such as One Roof, the Alabama Rescue Services Association and the Alabama Association of Nonprofits.  This enables us to respond appropriately to changing needs in our community.

Covenant House of West Virginia

 

 

Covenant House was founded in 1981 to help people with the fewest resources meet their basic needs: food, clothing, and shelter. After 30 years, our core mission remains the same. Whether a person is homeless, facing eviction, or needs food for their table, Covenant House is a safety net, an advocate, and a safe haven in times of crisis.

Without the generosity of supporters and volunteers, Covenant House would be hard-pressed to serve and assist the 25,000+ indidviduals who walk through our doors each year. Community donations of time, energy, money and goods provide us with the resources to keep helping our most vulnerable citizens. We depend on monetary gifts from across the country to continue helping individuals and families in need.

  • Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses alongside our homeowner partner families.
  • In addition to a down payment and monthly mortgage payments, homeowners invest hundreds of hours of their own labor into building their Habitat house and the houses of others.
  • Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and financed with affordable loans.
  • The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to build still more Habitat houses.


Today, Habitat for Humanity has built more than 500,000 houses, sheltering 2.5 million people worldwide.
