The Change for the Future program takes the coins collected from our Sunday Offerings and distributes them to four different nonprofit groups each year. The congregation voted on which groups will participate in this program during 2020 at our Annual Meeting on January 26, 2020.
- February-April 2020:Women to Be provides survivors of domestic violence, women experiencing homelessness, and asylum seekers in detention in New Mexico and Juarez, Mexico with washable, reusable menstrual supply kits that provide dignity and bolster self-confidence.
- May-July 2020:Oxford Houses of Albuquerque provide a safe and communal living environment for those who have never had the opportunity to lead a productive and sober lifestyle where they can learn the tools to be a successful contributing member of society.
- August-October 2020: Roadrunner Foodbank provides meals to hungry children and seniors throughout New Mexico. Currently, Roadrunner Food Bank is able to provide up to five meals for every dollar in contributions received.
- November 2020-January 2021: Sage Albuquerque educates the general public, service providers, and the LGBTQ community about the unique challenges older LGBTQ adults face and connects LGBTQ elders to opportunities for support.
