Solution 11: Coordination of Churches
Over the years, the 160+ faith-based charities in Shasta County have served the poor and downtrodden. Generally speaking, there has been limited communication, coordination and collaboration amongst these groups and the city departments. This creates the potential for duplication of activities and does not maximize the impact we could have as a whole community working together.
The Safe City Project recommends that a coalition be established to involve faith-based organizations who are active in community outreach. The Coalition would share information on what each church or charity is doing to serve the needy in our city at regular meetings.
Call to Action:
We’d like a volunteer qualified to lead the coalition of faith-based organizations.
Let your pastor or minister know about this opportunity for our city.
If you are leading a charity program in our city, join the coalition that will be established.
