Rev On The Streets - Winter Sanctuary 2014

Campaign Title

This page was created in support of Winter Sanctuary 2014 - Click here to join this cause

Preview

I am committed to making a difference in the lives of the homeless. I am choosing to live on the streets until the necessary amount of funds and awareness are available to provide a warm shelter and food during the winter months of 2014/15.

I personally made it a goal to take responsibility for raising $100,000 for this cause and with your help, we reached it! The total campaign is to raise $300,000 and I believe, together, we can do it. You can choose to donate from this page and see progress each day. 

*I have chosen to stretch my goal to $150,000. This would be half of the total for the Winter Sanctuary program. I've got two more days on the streets to make it out here for a full two weeks. Even though I'm tired, I believe in this cause and I think we can make it to $150,000 in the next couple of days. I'll be riding the light rail home to Capital on Saturday for the 6pm service. Can't wait to share my experiences with you. Please continue to donate so we can reach $150,000 by Saturday!

More about this Winter Sanctuary 2014:

Help us make a radical impact in the lives of those who need it most. Our mission is to raise $300,000 in order to provide temporary housing and food for hundreds of Sacramento's homeless during the winter months. 

Each winter, cold and wet weather conditions threaten the lives of nearly 1,000 homeless men and women who live on Sacramento-area streets. The Winter Sanctuary Program was founded to meet the needs of these individuals with nowhere to go. Comprised of a network of religious congregations under the leadership of Sacramento Steps Forward, Winter Sanctuary is the only winter shelter option for single, homeless adults. The goal of this privately funded program is to help these individuals, who all too often fall through the cracks.

Program Basics (data from HMIS)

  • 133 nights of shelter, hot meals, and simple breakfasts provided (November 19, 2012 to March 31, 2013)
  • An average of 89 guests sheltered nightly
  • 536 unduplicated guests served
  • Average length of stay: 24 days
  • Median length of stay: 10 days

Guest Demographics and Subpopulation Characteristics (data from HMIS)

  • Gender: The majority of Winter Sanctuary guests are male. Male 63%, Female 37%, less than 1%Transgendered (n=1)
  • Age: 70% ofWinter Sanctuary guests are between the ages of 25 and 54. Less than 10% of guests are Transition AgeYouth age 18-24 or Seniors 62 and older, 7% and 5% respectively.

I am SO excited to put you over the 150,000 mark. Maybe there will be another stretch goal. I am SO excited to see what God is going to do:)

Was actually living in my car and bathing in the American River daily when you asked me to go downtown Sacto on a Friday night to hand out food and to minister to folks. You thought maybe I could meet the guys that night and possibly find a place to stay. Ended up on Bernie and Mike's couch for the next year. The

Hi Pastor Rick, Praying for you, your safety and for the success of this project. As a unexpected blessing of this project, Tricia (daughter) went to church last Sunday (9/21) for the first time in 5+ years. She heard about your project and wants to help you in anyway she can. Tricia has a heart for the homeless, feeds many homeless friends and helps the homeless population in other ways as well.

I have completed my two-week journey on the streets of Sacramento. I will be boarding the Light Rail tonight and returning home for the 6pm Saturday service. This effort has reached several around the nation, even the world, and our team wanted to make this coming home celebration available to you through live stream.

Together, we completed my personal goal of $100k by day 9 and I added a stretch goal of $150k when realizing my journey wasn’t finished. We are so close to that $150k mark and I think we can make it there before 6 tonight. I'm ready to share what’s I've learned and excited to be coming home. Keep sharing. Keep donating.

Day 12. 

When I started this journey, I was unsure how long I would remain out on the streets. We didn't know if the $100,000 goal was even feasible in a two week period, but we prayed and asked God for His help. You helped me reach my goal in one week! I was blown away. Even though the funds came in, I didn't feel like my time out on the streets had been long enough. I felt God was still wanting to teach me things and I knew my experiences here would challenge me and allow me to grow. 

I'm getting tired. I guess that's to be expected when living in these conditions. My heart has another level of understanding and compassion for what the streets can do to a person. I'm ready to share my experiences with you on Saturday at 6pm. We will be live-streaming the service for those out of town. The details will be published on our website and Capital's Facebook as well. If you are in town, I would encourage you to make it out on Saturday night or Sunday at 9 & 11am. 

My family came down and spent the day with me yesterday. Nate & Lisa (son/daughter-in-law) came up from LA and pitched a tent next to mine in the alley. Nate also brought his guitar and it was so life-giving. I've been told they will post a video of one of his songs on Capital's Facebook page tonight- so look out for it. 

I have chosen to stretch my goal to $150,000. This would be half of the total for the Winter Sanctuary program. I've got two more days on the streets to make it out here for a full two weeks and it has stretched me. Even though I'm tired, I believe in this cause and I think we can make it to $150,000 in the next couple of days. I'll be riding the light rail home to Capital on Saturday. Please continue to donate and share our social media posts with friends and family so we can reach $150,000 by Saturday! 

I cannot begin to say thank you enough. I'm grateful that God has given me strength and health throughout my time so far. I'm grateful that He supplies creative ideas and uses normal people to make big miracles happen. #revscominghome

October 7, 2014 6:48 PM

My day has been filled with talking to various media outlets. I woke up early this morning to a text from Chris Nguyen asking if he could cover #revonthestreets for his last News 10 story in Sacramento. I showed up at the Capital and he did an amazing job getting the word out. I read the follow up Sacramento Bee article online from Hudson Sangree. I was interviewed by the Huffington Post over the phone and also connected with the 700 club to do a follow up story. I'll keep you posted when I hear more details on those venues. God seriously is moving in some big ways. I think when it's His thing, helping those in need, He does what only He can do. 

I was able to spend some more time today too with Sister Libby at Loaves & Fishes. It's incredible to see her heart for those that she gets to help each day. She is dedicated to making a difference in our city as well. 

I'm amazed at the continuous emails coming through for every dollar donated. I read all of your encouraging notes and affirmation for this cause. I'm humbled by your kind words. The days keep getting sweeter with the amount toward the goal closing the gap

Say a prayer for me tonight around 6pm as I'll be sharing my story at the Sacramento Kings Chapel. Keep sharing. Keep donating. 

October 6, 2014 7:09 PM

I've had a pretty epic weekend. I was asked to speak at the Loaves & Fishes Safe Haven service yesterday. I was honored to share my experiences with those in attendance. I definitely missed being at home with my church family, but it was a pretty surreal moment on this journey. From there, I went to Project Church where my nephew Caleb Cole leads, and they highlighted what we are doing through the Winter Sanctuary campaign in their services.

Last night, the Mayor of Sacramento, Kevin Johnson, joined me on the river banks. He refused to sleep in a tent of any kind. He pulled out his sleeping bag right on the sand and I pulled mine up right next to him. I'm honored that he would join me in fighting to save the Sanctuary program. He helped raise awareness and supported me just like a friend. He came around 9pm last night and we got to sit and talk about the city. Dream for our city. There are big things in store for Sacramento. We are coming together to care for the hurting and broken. We are uniting to bring healing and hope. I know this was all part of God's bigger plan! 

When we all play our part in the bigger picture, we can achieve our goals together. When I woke up this morning and updated the totals on my phone, we had done it! Together, we reached my personal goal of $100,000. Let's not stop. I'm staying out on the street until Saturday. I don't want to lose the momentum we have gained. I was able to do 3 more interviews this morning with Fox 40, KFBK and another Sac Bee follow up. The more people we can reach with this cause, the more feasible it is to make our $300,000 goal! I'm determined that we can do this together.  

I'm taking a bus tomorrow night down to the Kings stadium to do the players chapel. I'm going to update them on my life on the streets of Sacramento and give them some encouraging truth before their game. It'll be my first time on a bus in Sacramento. It'll be my first time showing up with a beard too. I'm excited for the week ahead and know that God is going to continue to use me right where I'm at. I'm encouraged by your prayers and your donations. Thanks for standing behind me in this cause! Keep sharing. Keep donating.

October 4, 2014 5:21 PM

I'm on day 7 of living on the streets of Sacramento. It's hard to believe that we just announced this idea at Church last Saturday night. So much has happened since the idea was birthed and so much money has been raised for the amazing Winter Sanctuary cause. Sometimes it feels like I've been out here forever, and other times it all feels just like a daze. I'm wishing that I could be with you at church this weekend. I'm going to miss my Capital family tonight at 6pm and tomorrow morning at 9 & 11 - but I know I've left it in good hands. Make sure to attend this weekend for a special update from me! 

It's been an incredible day today. I met a family who's been recently attending our church and they were stirred in their hearts for a while to do something for the homeless. They packed and provided several bagged lunches that they funded themselves and brought down to City Park. I luckily was a recipient of one of these lunches. It hit the spot! I was actually pretty hungry. It was amazing to see several people take advantage of this generous, practical display of love for people. People were lining up! I'm so grateful for everyone's support. You have truly embraced the spirit of who Jesus is. I couldn't be more proud than to walk this journey out with you. 

The progress we are making financially continues to gain momentum. I got a message today from a friend that works for Joyce 

Meyer and she was moved by our desire to see Sacramento's homeless sheltered in this winter season. She personally is donating $5000 toward the cause. On another front, I see posts from friends that are teaching their kids the value of caring for others. One friend pulled out all their money from their piggy bank and is donating it toward Winter Sanctuary (see photo). We are moving forward in reaching our goal of $300,000

I've been asked if I'm coming in off the streets once my $100,000 personal goal is met. I'm thinking that this experience really matters, and I'm probably going to see it through for the full 2 weeks. I'm learning so much. I'm meeting so many people who desperately want to see the shelter happen this winter. I don't want this momentum to end. I've got a surprise guest coming out with me tomorrow (I'll share it then) and I think my son & daughter-in-law from LA might make it up this week to stay a night too. I'm excited for what's ahead. I can't wait to share with you next weekend all that I have learned and got new vision for. I also can't wait to sleep in my own bed. Keep sharing. Keep donating! You are making a difference.   #revonthestreets

Today has been remarkable. Leaders in our community accepted my challenge and made a huge dent in our goal. I had been told that Ray Johnson from Bayside wanted to meet me at 10am in the City Park, but I wasn't sure what he was going to do or say. When he handed me a check for $13,000 I was extremely happy. I love how we are so much stronger together as a team of faith leaders than we are apart. Our culture is shifting in Sacramento. Everyone is coming together to make our city greater and most importantly to make our God famous. 

I just received a video from my friend Scott Hagen all the way from Poland today. He & his wife committed personally to $1,000 and though they are out of the country, their Real Life Church was going to step up as well. Crazy how this news is traveling around the world. I love seeing the social reach on the map. People from Europe, Australia, and South America are giving to our need right here in Sacramento. 

There has been a lot of momentum today which is so encouraging. I was glad that the Sacramento Bee wrote a positive article on my journey as well. You never know how a reporter can spin your personal experience, but I found Cynthia to be very affirming. Thank you for helping push me toward our goal. As I'm writing this we are at $77,627 of my personal goal. That's over 75% of the way there. You are incredible! Your passion to help hurting people fuels my passion all the more. I need your help to keep pushing us over the limit. The goal for the Winter Sanctuary cause is $300,000. I want to help see this goal fulfilled. Thank you to all who have donated. I couldn't do this without you. Your trust in me to see this through helps each night go faster. Continue to share. Continue to donate. Continue watching Capital's Facebook for updates.

I've waved goodbye to a lot of comforts that we often take for granted: convenient restrooms, 

warm showers, shaving, clean clothes, 3 meals a day and snacks in between, the security of home, the use of electricity when it gets dark outside, and the most recognizable - a good night's sleep!

My night with Jacoby was a fun adventure! He's a blast to be with. Check out our video we published on Capital's Facebook for the story about the miracle mattress! Seriously made a huge difference last night. And today we have passed the $50k mark! That means I'm halfway toward meeting my goal. We still have a ways to go to cover the $300k goal of the Winter Sanctuary program. But every dollar donated is making a big impact. I've said it before in years past regarding this program, and I still feel the same today: failure isn't an option! 

As I was sitting on the Library steps before the doors opened, I found myself having a conversation with a homeless man. I was just curious about why the homeless population was drawn to that building. There are a lot of reasons he shared with me, including the computer lab and restrooms, but our conversation went beyond that. I told him that I'd only been on the street for a few days, stayed at the Union Gospel Mission and then various places on the street after that. He went on to give me some tips about the street. The best part being - he described how the cold winter season was just around the corner and you could make your way to Loaves & Fishes and get into a program that buses people to churches around the city. They give some entertainment, good food, and a warm safe place to stay. He was literally describing the Winter Sanctuary. I never told him that I was out on the street raising money for the very program that was a lifesaver for him. I knew then that the program truly made a difference. It made an impact. It helped. If I can help ease the plight of one homeless person ($11), and help bring some hope and dignity to their soul, than it's all been worth it! It is worth it.

Other fun news out on the streets today, I got my TB card approved! Funny the things that get you excited. Also, for those of you who like the insider's scoop, the Mayor called me today and confirmed that he will stay with me for a night next week. I'm honored to call him a friend and I know his heart to make our city stronger and bring awareness to this program is genuine. You wouldn't sleep out here otherwise. Seriously. 

You make my days easier with every email update I get from every donation. I haven't erased any of them. Your messages, encouragement and every social media share keep me going. I know God is working in me. I know He's going to keep doing miracles. Keep sharing, donating and spreading the word of #revonthestreets to your circles of influence.

I've been out on the streets of Sacramento for over 72 hours. I am forever marked and inspired by this experience so far. My biggest challenge is sleeping at night. There is an element of sketchiness, smells, dirt and sounds that wake you up intermittently. I'm also 57 years old. So sleeping on the ground is more challenging. Also, I've been thinking about how it's still mildly warm right now in Sacramento, but it gets cold in the middle of the night. I can't imagine sleeping out here in rain and freezing temperatures. It puts into perspective the value of what we provide through the Winter Sanctuary. If we can raise the full amount of $300,000, we are ensuring over 500 individuals a safe and peaceful place to sleep at night over the 5 month period. 

There are individuals who want help! I met one man who lost his job, became divorced and ended up on the streets in a moments notice. It wasn't anything he planned or dreamed for his life. He was looking for hope. I'm blessed that you are catching the vision for this project. That you see the value of providing hope for these people. That you are willing to sacrifice with me by donating to this cause. 

A reporter from the Sacramento Bee has been shadowing me today with a photographer. That's been interesting. It will be fun to read what they experienced in my day. The more awareness we can bring to our community about the Winter Sanctuary program, the better we can serve those who are looking for help. Continue to share. Continue to donate!

I also randomly ran into the Mayor today in City Park. That was a highlight for me. I find myself hanging out in the park throughout the day with other friends I'm meeting. I went to the Library today, hung out at the Farmers Market and one of the Mayor's staff members bought me some popcorn and fruit. It's been a good day. Things I've never yet experienced in Sacramento. 

The days don't seem to be too bad. I have to say, I'm not really looking forward to the nights sleep, but I'm excited that my friend Jacoby Shaddix is coming to hang out with me tonight before he leaves on tour tomorrow. He just started a donation page and has raised over $1500 in less than 3 hours. What can you do to get the word out?

I have hit 48 hours on the streets of Sacramento. Today started off with a tour of Loaves & Fishes downtown. 

They also fed me lunch and required me to get a TB test. Your perspective of the homeless plight changes when you experience it for yourself. I'm viewing the "homeless" not just as a social problem to fix but actual people with stories. It's fascinating to learn about various challenges in this population. I am still determined we can make a difference. 

I'm finding the time spent walking the streets can be a little lonesome. My compassion is increasing. The Winter Sanctuary program needs to continue so those who desire a warm shelter, food and companionship are able to get their needs met. Sometimes we all just need a little helping hand. I desire to be that. I know you do too! Continue to follow our updates on facebook.com/capitalchristiancenter. 

I'm posting daily videos of my experiences on the street. I am forever grateful for your donation and compassion you have to make a difference. Together, we are! Don't forget to share this cause with your friends and family. Every dollar counts. Every $11 is shelter for a person during November 24, 2014 - March 31, 2015.

I've been interviewed by Fox 40 to be on their channel tonight at 6pm. Check it out for the most current update of my journey out on the streets of Sacramento. I already have a ton of stories to share and I've been encouraged to write them all down. Tonight I will forego the shelter and stay out on the street. Didn't get much sleep last night so I'm hoping to catch up tonight. It's been an interesting day and a change of pace from my normal life. 

I'm so encouraged by all of the support and love on this journey so far. Excited to see the donations come in! We are making a difference. The Winter Sanctuary is a blessing for those looking for shelter in the cold months. I can't thank you enough for sharing this story in your social circles. More to come!
