Please join St. Tikhon Mission to support the Gobezie Goshu Home - our charity of the month for April. Collections are held each Sunday, or contributions can be made online.
His Eminence, Archbishop BENJAMIN has directed a diocesan-wide Lenten Appeal for 2021 in support of the Gobezie Goshu Home for the Elderly and Support for Children, located in the town of Adwa, Tigray Province, northern Ethiopia. This year's appeal for this worthy charitable work... is being cast into the even graver-than-usual circumstances of the pandemic and a devastating civil war. READ MORE

Most Teen Moms Live in Poverty
Hope House Colorado's story: It was shocking to discover that 67% of teen moms live below the poverty line – and even more shocking to discover how many are actually homeless or living in an abusive situation.
Today, Hope House is metro-Denver’s only resource providing free self-sufficiency programs to teen moms, including Residential, GED, and College & Career Programs. They also provide parenting and healthy relationship classes, life skills workshops and certified counseling, all designed to prepare teen moms for long-term independence. The residential program offers a safe, stable home for teen moms and their children who are homeless or living in an unsafe environment. The structured program empowers and equips parenting teen moms as they move toward personal and economic self-sufficiency.
