HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP!!
At our Church Council meeting on Tuesday, May
28, there was discussion about transients. For your
information, we request that all the guests who come to
Agape Café for breakfast on Sunday mornings at
7:30am not sleep on the premises; and they respect
our rules. That is about 60-95 people on any given
However, that leaves another 200-300 homeless
and indigent walking the streets in Fullerton, and they
don’t know our rules. They are just looking for someplace
to be out of the weather and be safe. But, we
have rules for a reason.
So, here’s how YOU can help.
- I pray that at all times, we practice the Golden
- If someone approaches you for money, be compassionate,
but firm that you cannot help them.
They can check with the church office for further
- If you see someone sleeping in and around our
buildings, we ask that you call Manny Ferrer,
our office manager and Parish Facilities Coordinator,
and report the exact location perhaps
with a description, if you can, and Manny will
take care of the situation.
- We may never solve this problem, but we can do
our best to keep it in check.
- I hope you will take pride in the fact that we have
an amazing program for helping feed those
less fortunate than ourselves; and that every
Sunday, without fail, we bless someone’s life in
a special way or help with a need; and that
blesses the team that diligently commits to this
program every week.
This will help everyone feel safer, and hopefully
start to decrease this problem.
