CHRISTIAN HELP PARTNERS
The Christian Help Committee longs for the day when justice rolls down like waters (Amos 5:24) As we seek to hasten the arrival of that day, the Committee searches for ways for Plymouth members to shared our bounty with a broken world—giving both our money and our time, and transforming the lives of others and our own. We prayerfully determine financial allocation funds set aside for this purpose, to organizations serving the most needy and isolated individuals in our local and international community.
This past year the following were selected as partners. Grants were made to them with the intent of furthering their good works.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY | NEW YORK CITY
Habitat for Humanity New York City transforms lives by building quality homes with families in need and by uniting all New Yorkers around the cause of affordable housing.

Located in the Eastern Region of Cameroon the Mission School of Hope was created to provide education to the less privileged Baka children. They began with 15 students and today serve 210 students to whom they provide education, healthcare, clothing and food.
