covid-19 relief

The Harbor Church was started with a vision of becoming a place of Home, Healing and Hope in Christ Jesus. Our mission is to meet the spiritual and physical needs of the community, along with creating a space to encounter God. 

 

In these uncertain and heavy times, the mission of our church is needed more than ever. We mourn with those who mourn about lost lives of loved ones, lost jobs, unstable financial circumstances, and uncertain futures. We not only want to meet the needs of our community, but we want to activate the church to be the hands and feet of Jesus in this time. 

 

The Harbor Church will be starting a fund to provide relief to those experiencing hardships in our community due to COVID 19. Since we’re not meeting physically as a church, we started this fund with the money we would have used to rent our church building in the month of March, April, & as long as the "Safer at Home" order remains.

 

We wanted to share with you some of the ways the fund will be used. 50% of the fund will be given to food distribution and the other 50% will be given to financially support economically impacted groups in our area. Here are the specific ways the fund will be used. 

 

Food Distribution: 

 

  • 30% will be used to buy gift cards to grocery stores to be distributed to those in need. If it is difficult for you to afford groceries during this time, please email info@harborla.com and a gift card will be delivered to you (while supplies last). 

 

  • 20% will be donated to provide meal deliveries through Everytable and LA Food Bank. If you are unable to leave your home and need food delivered through Everytable, please contact 323-458-6487.

 

Financial Support: 
 

  • 30% will be donated to One Family LA. Over 20 non-profit organizations in LA collectively launched One Family LA, a fundraising effort to help LA's families and their children in this difficult time. Every dollar donated will go straight to families most economically impacted by COVID-19 to cover their basic necessities.

 

  • 10% will support local businesses that we have relationships within South LA.  

 

  • 10% will provide financial assistance for housing for individuals who have lost their jobs. Please email info@harborchurchla.com for more information.
