Dear Interested Prospective Partner:


We are writing to introduce Coffee for Christ d.b.a. Santa Cruz Revival ("SCR"), a nonprofit

Christian organization concerned with the homeless, near homeless, and

marginalized of Santa Cruz County, California. We believe SCR fits your grant

program's criteria, and would like you to consider it for a grant proposal.


Santa Cruz County's Homeless Population is growing. The 2006 census indicated that

2.1% of the general population was homeless. The SC County Homeless Service

Center's 2007 statistics show that 15 percent of the County's population was seeking

homeless services; that 4,563 persons were receiving homeless dental care services, and

that the homeless shelters were housing 2,789 persons per night.1 In April 2008, the City

Council admitted in public meeting that each night 1000 to 1200 persons were sleeping

outside in bushes or hidden camps.2 We expect the 2010 Census to confirm what we

know; the homeless population in Santa Cruz, as it is across the Nation, has grown

significantly during the economic downturn.


SCR's Bylaw directive is a mission to feed, shelter, and administer to Santa Cruz

County's homeless and needy. The present objectives of SCR are several, and are taking


Food Bank Ministry: Each week SCR provides food and ministry:

* Homeless Youth Night at Calvary Episcopal Church provides a Bible study,

prayer, socialization along with and a full hot meal - Monday nights.

* Circle Church Dinner and Food Distribution -- Tuesday evenings. This program

is currently in process.3

* Peanut butter and jelly sandwich, water and various drinks, chips, cookies or fruit

distribution, along with personal need items -- e.g., socks, toothbrushes, etc. --

Thursday evenings.

* Saint Philip's Episcopal Church's Food Pantry -- Distribution of grocery bag


Agape Manna: directed by Ron Scadina, is the organizational arm of SCR and

manages food distribution. Agape Manna makes sure that insurance, drivers, and other

practical or legal requirements are in place.
