You can play a part

Manna Connect

At Cherry Hills, we have a mission to help lift 20 families in our community out of homelessness by 2020.

Manna Connect is an opportunity to empower individuals and families towards self-sufficiency and strength through providing community, coaching, and career development to those in need. And you can play a part.

Manna Connect Overview


How To Get Involved.

The success of Manna Connect and its participants, or “Leaders,” depends on our church providing a community of encouragement, hope, and practical resources as they lead themselves out of poverty.

Manna Connect has been designed so that everyone in our church can play a vital role in eradicating homelessness in our community. See how you can play a part!
