Friendship is pleased to announce, in partnership with First
Baptist Church in Montgomery AL, the purchase of the old Elks Lodge in the
Chishom Community. Located on the outskirts of the downtown area, these
buildings were originally built as military housing before being taken over by
the Dept. of Mental Health. Until recently the facility was used to house
homeless mentally ill patients but due to budget cuts the Mental Health Dept.
has agreed to sell this property and all of the buildings.
Pastor Rosato and the staff at Friendship have long prayed
for a facility to provide aid to Women and Mothers and their children. God does
provide, this purchase is the answer to that prayer. There is much work to be
done and a lot of fundraising to come, but Friendship is dedicated to
First Baptist will continue the programs that they currently
provide from that location.
This is exciting news! We will keep providing updates and
God willing we will soon be able to open this facility.
These are the first pictures! Things look a little rough but with God's help and the support from Friendship's supporters all obstacles can be overcome
