Church Resources

Help us Transform our Community for Christ
Building partnerships and working together with the local church to bring help to children, healing to families and hope to our own community.

Resource Booth at Your Church

A representative from GAP would be happy to come and set up a booth at a service of your choice. GAP will have information on all the programs offered and ways to engage and connect. We can provide information about Foster Care licensing, food available at the Community Warehouse, GAP Kitchen partnerships, and Career Training opportunities. We can also have volunteer opportunities for individuals or groups at your church. This will be informational and interactive. Let us know if you would like us to provide slides about GAP or speak in front of your congregation.
