Agape Fish Fund partners with local churches and volunteers to provide meals, supplies, and Christian support for the homeless in San Jose, California.
a new semester of ministry
On Saturday, March 2, 2019, a team of 9 volunteers gathered to relaunch our homeless ministry in San Jose. This was our first time back since last year, and we got to reconnect with a lot of the same people we helped previously.
It was good reconnecting with people we haven't seen in a while, and we got to catch up with each other. It was a satisfying experience due to the fact that we have established real relationships with these people and were able to catch up like old friends.
We told them that we were going to be out more consistently and jotted down any items that they might need. We are also teaming up with another church called Christian Worship Center, as we have done before in the past, so things have been picked up where we left off.
We decided to provide a lot of clothing for the homeless outreach. It has been quite cold out, so we figured that they could use some extra clothes to keep warm at night.
We still had other items from the previous homeless outreaches, so we decided to distribute those out as well. We distributed clothing, food, and hygiene items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, feminine hygiene products, and soap. We were able to serve eight homeless people this time.
