Since 2008, Eagle Ridge Bible Fellowship has been working together with Hope for Freedom Society and other Tri-Cities churches to run the Cold Wet Weather Mat Program for the homeless during the winter months. We have asked the City of Coquitlam to renew our Temporary Use Permit for another three years to enable us to continue to use our facility for this program.
One of the host churches, St. Andrews United Church in Porty Moody, published a short video giving a great window into this important ministry (see below) some time ago. Unlike other years, we are hoping to have a regular team of people from a partner organization run the program (instead of church volunteers due to COVID concerns). We ask for your prayers in this regard that a partner organziation can be found to provide this.
