Tustin Presbyterian Church remains a big supporter of Family Promise Orange County. We started when Family Promise first opened its doors 10 years ago. We gave $108,000 to kick off the House of Ruth project in 2016 with Presbytery matching funds. Now we are seeking to donate another $100,000 in 2021 by raising $50,000 from the congregation to match Session’s contribution of $50,000 from a dedicated mission project account. The House of Ruth building campaign has already raised $1,350,000 of the $3,700,000 required to construct the 7 apartment-style housing unit in the city of Tustin. It is designed to provide transitional housing and a community navigation center for homeless families in Tustin and Orange County. It is a partnership with the City of Tustin which donated the land, and HomeAid OC, which will provide donated labor for its design and construction. We will have more information on the House of Ruth available in the patio after the worship service on July 4.
We are off to a good start with more than 30% of our $50,000 goal pledged. We sincerely hope you will find this project worthy and donate to this cause. Checks can be sent to the church to the attention of Martha. Please mark checks with House of Ruth Building Campaign (HORBC). Thank you for your consideration of this fundraiser.
