For Such a Time as This: The October day of fasting and action is Oct. 21

As the seasons transition and the days become colder, we answer the call this month by supporting action for people facing homelessness, unaffordable heating bills, and extreme housing insecurity. Only a quarter of the poorest households eligible for relief ever receive any assistance–creating barriers to success and stability for millions of households across the country. Christians have a long history of assisting people without housing by providing shelter and can offer a compelling voice in the public sphere through advocacy. 

Check out this month’s advocacy resource by visiting and look out for action alerts in upcoming weeks.
