Good Works Day In The Life

WhY DAY IN THE LIFE?

Good Works is entirely supported by donations

The goal of DAY IN THE LIFE is to raise funds to cover as many days as possible in the life of The Timothy House for 2022.  These funds cover staffing, utilities, insurance, repairs and some food and supplies (although most of our food and supplies are donated).  We estimate one day to be about $500.00

Some History

For 17 consecutive years, Good Works sponsored The Good Works WALK (originally called The Walk For The Homeless) to create an experience through which participants could better understand the situation of poverty and homelessness and to raise funds for The Good Works Timothy House. This annual event was held initially in January to celebrate the vision and values of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and eventually moved to February to accommodate the changes in the Ohio University schedule. February 23, 2019 was the last WALK.

Some Statistics

Shelter

Good Works has provided more than 127,000 nights of shelter to men, women and children experiencing homelessness in rural Ohio.

Meals

Historically, Good Works has provided about 21,000 meals a year to adults and children who experience hunger and food insecurity here in rural Ohio.

Needs

The Timothy House is the only home for adults and children experiencing homelessness in 8 rural southeast Ohio counties. Good Works must locate about $180,000 each year (about $500 a day) to fund The Timothy House.
