The 2013 offering was taken in Churches all over Kalamazoo on Sunday, November 24, 2013 and will be used to fund the following projects:
A goal of $60,000 to construct staff housing. Providing housing will reduce dependency on American funding by $1000 per month.
A goal of $60,000 to enclose the multipurpose building. Solomon's Academy still prepares meals for 600 students in a 12 x 12 kitchen and elementary students eat at their desks. Preschool students, who have no desks, eat sitting on the floor. This building will provide a proper kitchen, a dining hall, and in Phase II a neighborhood medical clinic.
A goal of $62,500 to enhance a new job preparation program called Momentum, a division of Urban Alliance. Momentum graduates, with new jobs, still have obstacles such as transportation and child care. The CFC contribution will provide short term solutions on the road to financial self-sufficiency.
