Community Touch, Inc.
December 4, 2009
Community Touch is a non-profit Charitable organization designed to assist people who are down on their luck to be able to rejoin the community as productive citizens. They do that by offering free housing for a specific period of time, food and clothing at either free or reduced prices based upon their ability to pay. Counseling is also provided on financial management, to include budgeting and savings. Tutoring is also available for the children.
To participate a person must be employed and have transportation to place of employment. A portion of that person’s salary is deposited into a savings account, to be returned to them when they leave as a deposit on a dwelling.
Community touch also runs a thrift store, where people may purchase donated items at reduced prices. These monies help fund Community Touch in their charitable activities. Several times during the year, the thrift store, known as Noah’s Ark has special programs where people may come in and obtain school clothes for free for the children and a Coats for Kids project.
What makes Community Touch unique and a very valuable asset to the community is that they not only feed with “fish” they also teach how to fish. Upon completing the program, families can return to the community as productive citizens and add to their community.
Pastor and Felicia Champion are very properly named. In my eyes both of them are champions. They are taking Christian principals and putting them into action, and as we all know, actions speak much louder than words
