BCM 2020 Impact Report
Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off.
Hasn’t 2020 been quite the year?!
While it has been a time of incredible challenge in our community and in the world, we have also seen God’s generous provision and faithfulness, over and over. With the shelter-in-place orders in March, our staff quickly transitioned to remote work and moved our programs online. We also created a Covid Family Assistance Fund. Thanks to gifts made by many friends of BCM, we were able to provide financial support to help our families with rent, groceries and other bills. June brought new county guidance, and we offered in-person summer programs, in addition to continuing remote spiritual programming. We are grateful for the incredible team of staff, interns, volunteers (both in person and virtual), prayer warriors and financial supporters who have made it possible for us to continue our mission during a time when academic and spiritual support for the youth of our community is more critical than ever. As we reflect on this tumultuous time, we hold on to the peace found in Christ and press on as messengers of hope and a future in East Palo Alto and Belle Haven.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
