A message from Mike Mojarro, director of Living Hope Compassion Ministries:

Mike Mojarro is Living Hope’s executive director.

We will be presenting The Shack Sunday September 21 at the Stirring at Churn Creek Road in Redding.

The Shack is a pop-up non-profit restaurant. We serve wonderful meals with fresh organic ingredients from our garden that is managed by former homeless clients.

One hundred percent of the proceeds generated from The Shack are invested in serving those less fortunate in our community.

The Shack is also a vocational rehabilitation program, in which we hire homeless clients with the revenue generated from The Shack and teach them job skills. Every time you come and eat at The Shack, not only does your stomach leave satisfied, you are literally investing in the lives of those who are in need in our community. You are not merely offering a “hand-out,” but partnering with us to offer a hand up!

Our dream is to one day have a full-time restaurant that is fully operated and run by former homeless clients. We want to empower our homeless friends by creating job opportunities for them, and offering tangible hope.

This would not only create jobs but, allow them to generate consistent income. A job would allow them to pay for housing and make them a stronger candidate for future employment by gaining the job skills, job history, and references to be successful in our competitive job market.

Come support a great cause and enjoy some great food! Bring your friends!
