Perpetual Covenant Project – New Ark Church
The news is getting better about our project with the VA for permanent housing for homeless veterans. The energy is good surrounding this project. God is leading us to good people. We have selected three sites, in three different neighborhoods around Ypsilanti, Michigan.
We have a fundraiser at the Eastern Michigan University Convocation Center on Saturday, June 22nd from 2:00-7:00pm.
You can follow New Ark Church in Ypsilanti on Facebook.
Army Emergency Relief Organization
Dale interviews LTG Raymond Mason, Director of Army Emergency Relief. General Mason retired from the Army in 2014 after serving 35 years on active duty, and joined AER in 2017.
Army Emergency Relief is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial assistance to Soldiers and their Families. Since it was founded in 1942, AER has provided assistance to more than 4 million Active and Retired Soldiers and their Families.
Last year AER provided $70 million in assistance to 40,000 Soldiers and their Families. That includes more than $10 million in full Grants to Soldiers and $9 million in scholarship grants to Spouses and Dependents.
Soldiers in need of AER assistance can either contact their unit Chain of Command, go directly to an AER office at their nearest Army installation, or contact one of our partner organizations. AER has reciprocal agreements in place with the other military aid societies. This allows Soldiers to apply for AER assistance at any Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard installation with a military aid office. The American Red Cross call center (877272-7337) can also help Soldiers apply for AER assistance if no transportation is available, or if there is no convenient military installation.
