Bare Essentials Homeless Initiative
The GEM CHURCH recognizes that 46 million Americans visit food-sharing programs annually. One out of every six Americans lacks the BARE necessities needed to sustain life even at the lowest of standards. Lack of basic needs directly results in innumerable physical, mental, and emotional health consequences that may lead to heavy cost burdens, further health concerns, and even death.
The onset of COVID 19 has further increased the number of Americans that are separated from resources that provide assistance with Bare Essentials.
Bare Essentials may include but are not limited to FOOD, SOCKS, ALCOHOL WIPES, MASKS, SOAP, WATER, TISSUE, NON PERISHABLE FOODS, DISPOSABLE RAZORS, TOOTHBRUSHES & TOOTHPASTE!
