20,000

Man it makes me cry.

I just want to help everyone.

It’s time to overcome my insecurities.

Believe in me because God believes in me.

Make videos.

Reach more.

Connect with people on the streets.

Detroit I’ve heard your cry.

I’m on my way.

I’ll try my best to help you out.

Maybe one of those old schools can start the process.

Lord I pray for you to guide my way.

Ending homelessness and hunger for ALL is of upmost importance.

20,000 cold.

20,000 hungry.

20,000 fearing for their lives.

20,000

20,000 brothers and sisters alone.

20,000

In one city is way too much.

20,000 beating hearts.

20,000 breathing lungs.

20,000

People.

One way…

One way I have healed, continue to heal, and obviously dealt with my life as it was happening is by giving to those in need.

Over the last two years I have single handily organize the collection and distribution of over 2,000 items to the homeless and those in need (well those brave enough to ask).

What started off as gift baskets for new moms…Grandma finally spoke up about the real need without shame. I am paying for help like this out of my personal finances. This is why we’ve started fundraising.

I have come to find out the reason why I felt God has called me to this since a young age. I feel it’s because the missions we have now, especially those acting in the name of God, are so discriminatory and that is opposite to God’s love.

A small portion was kept for blessing bags, everything else was delivered to two “tent cities” in Chicago on 6/18/2020, thank you to Living Grace Church of Merrillville Indiana and MeMe’s Place of Crown Point Indian, and all the individual donors as well. We will have that vehicle and trailer soon. I’ve run out of floor space 😁 great problem to have!!!

I believe God knows I will love anyone and everyone no matter who they are, where they have been, or where they are going just like He loves them, even if they don’t love Him. Because God’s love is free and universal. You don’t have to earn it you already have it and everyone is deserving of being loved the way God loves them, without borders or conditions.

We need more blessing bag items. Think lunch box foods, hand sanitizers, bags, toilet paper, and more. Thanksgiving 2019

Since I have been working so diligently over the last week to raise money for our first vehicle so I can go mobile, I have felt a tremendous amount of freedom and have even found some strength to tell the two most toxic people in my life to just go away and leave me alone, and feel good about it.

Serving…

I find that I am happiest and at my truest peace when I am serving others in any capacity. Even the smallest of gestures that make someone smiles really just fills me with joy. I guess when you give with a joyful heart your cup flows over with joy.

I’m working so hard to meet the needs of the most vulnerable communities, especially the homeless and at risk communities. I have been working so hard over the last two years reading laws and collecting items and trying to figure out what is the best way to go about this whole charity. It’s been countless hours and sometimes, like now, exhausting.

The only thing that keeps me from my goals with Freely Love Outreach is my inability to be confident in me. I guess my doubt for this is a like doubting God since I know he called me to do this, I should just trust that he’ll provide it all.

I’ve officially started fundraising something I haven’t done in the two years I’ve been collecting and distributing items of need to the homeless and those in need. I am opening a bank account for the charity and so many wonderful things are starting to happen.

I have a short term goal of purchasing some kind of vehicle/trailer in order to become a “mobile pantry”. I am reading so many bad things about the places I’ve been serving that I’m torn between giving them the items or just handing them out myself. I want to take the mission mobile. Meet people where they are.

I imagine eventually having Tesla Semi Trucks, but in the short term it would be awesome to purchase a Tesla Cyber truck with the cook/prep tops. That way I could haul the pantry and offer at hot meal. That’s not cheap. I’m a single stay-at-home-mom I cannot do this without the support of the community.

Please check out the small gallery of what we’ve been doing on the Freely Love Outreach page. Also head on over to Facebook and join the fundraising group; Freely Love Outreach Fundraising Group, and help us make life a little brighter for someone else.

Freely Love Outreach

Since I was 7 I knew I was called to open a homeless rehabilitation and prevention center. I’m so glad to be working toward making that calling a reality.

Freely Love Outreach is serving society’s most vulnerable populations; the homeless, LGBT, poor, orphans. We believe love is the universal language and that it is to be freely given to every person unconditionally, without regard to gender, gender identity, nationality, race, religion, or sexual orientation or preference. We believe that inclusivity is just the way Jesus loved, and we thrive to be the hands and feet of Jesus to societies most vulnerable and marginalized communities.

This is the fundraising group for Freely Love Outreach. 100% of the proceeds of anything sold in this group go to the mission and vision we have.

Our vision is to eliminate homelessness in the Chicagoland and NWI area, making hotel like rehabilitation and prevention centers. Each suite will be reminiscent of a hotel suite. They will have a private bathroom and kitchenette. There will be a communal main kitchen to provide hot meals. There will also be a food/clothing “store”, access to mental/physical health care, job training and coaching, childcare, and a safe place to transition into self sufficiency and living inside (which is sometimes the hardest part of the transition from homeless to self sufficient).

Right now while we are working on achieving our vision debt free through community support, we are still continuing what we have been doing for the last two years; collecting and distributing items of great need for the communities we serve. These items include but definitely not limited to:

Non-perishable food items

Personal care items

Feminine care items

Canister snacks

Jerky

Socks

Hand sanitizer

Toilet paper

Nylon drawstring bags

Condoms

Diapers (infant-adult)

Clothing

Winter Warmth items

Travel products

Hotel toiletries

Travel Toothbrushes

Toothpaste

and so much more

We make blessing bags out of the donated items that are bag friendly, and we then distribute them by walking the streets and meeting the people where they are at. The items that are collected that are more appropriate for the missions we donate them to them. The biggest mission we support is Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago Illinois. They service up to 300 women and children nightly, and more men than that on a daily basis.

This group is a way for us to raise money to achieve our vision. The first purchase we would like to make is for a trailer of some sort to collect, distribute, and organize the items donated. This will allow us to be a “mobile pantry” so that we can allow people to make their own Blessing Bag according to their individual needs at that moment.

After that we would like to purchase something to where we could provide hot meals, showers, laundry, and be able to move around from community to community providing much needed items and love.

Doing this takes fundraising and your help. In order to end and prevent homelessness and poverty for all is a team effort. Join our fundraising group to participate in the fundraisers to help us meet our goals.

Right now we have multiple raffles going on. A $50 Aldi gift card for $5 an entry, a grow the group gift card giveaway, ColorStreet nails raffle and give away, and we’re just getting started raising money for these goals, the last two years we have been just collecting and distributing items of need.
