Promise Land Ministries Lighthouse Homeless Shelter Requests Help in Time of Need

Promise Land Ministries Lighthouse Homeless Shelter Requests Help in Time of Need

To The Community of Wakulla County,

Many of you know me already but for those who don’t, my name is Glenn M. Hamel, and I am the Pastor of Promise Land Ministries Lighthouse.  Promise Land has been serving the community of Wakulla County for the past 18 years.  We are the only shelter for the homeless in Wakulla County and have had the pleasure of meeting the needs of thousands of individuals during this time.  We now have an 18 bed facility that provides housing and rehabilitation for homeless or soon to be homeless men.  We also provide emergency food assistance to those in need within our community and are currently serving close to 50 families a month.  With the current state of the economy the need for our neighbors is increasing rapidly, not only for food, but for housing assistance as well. 

{sidebar id=1}With this said, I am asking for your help.  We recently went through an inspection process and were made aware of some code violations that need immediate attention to continue operations.  These violations are safety and electrical related and will require us to install a new stove, ventilation and fire suppression systems, as well as some electrical issues that are already being attended to.

We want our community to know that we at Promise Land Ministries Lighthouse are committed to helping serve those in need and committed to providing a safe, secure and a hazard free living environment for our clients and the community we serve.  This is where we need your help.  In order to be compliant, everything that is being done must be completed by licensed and insured contractors; this is not cheap. 

Mark and Cole Oliver of “Anytime Electric” have committed to volunteering as many man hours as possible, but supplies will still be needed.  These supplies along with the estimated cost to update the kitchen equipment will be close to $12,000.00.  If you can help us accomplish this goal we will be able to continue to serve our community uninterrupted.  Any donation, no matter the amount, will help make a difference. 

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call me at 850-251-4302 or write to 20 Church Rd, Crawfordville, Florida, 32327.

Thank You,

Pastor Glenn M. Hamel
