Jacob’s Well is homeless and we need your help!
Jacob’s Well Ministry and the approximately 80 low-income residents who share our building are being reno-victed from 239 Main Street in the Downtown Eastside (DTES) of Vancouver by September 1st, 2017, after 17 years of occupancy. The property has been sold and will be used for new purposes.
The Jacob’s Well community feels called to continue its ministry in the DTES. Moving and re-establishing ourselves in a new location, however, requires our entire community to meet the challenge of moving within a short timeframe: Jacob’s Well needs to raise $100,000 by September 1st as a first step towards procuring and renovating a new facility with a kitchen where we can continue the work of sharing God’s love with our neighbours. If we are unsuccessful in raising the funds we will be considering whether it is time to close our doors for good.
