3e Logo   A Ministry Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church

The mission of 3e is to encourage, equip and empower faith communities to help transition neighbors living through homelessness from social displacement to holistic sufficiency through gracious hospitality and systemic change one friend at a time.
The needs of this ministry will vary in time, talents and resources, as well as direct engagement or distant support. As a parish we will walk with one family or individual at a time, who has recently been housed by LINK of Hampton Roads and help them move toward self sustainability by Encouraging, Equipping and Empowering (those are the “3e”s).

Current Needs:
Our Lady of Mt Carmel parish is beginning a walk with our newest family (recently housed from homelessness). They are a family of 5: single working Mom with 4 beautiful daughters. This family is in need of some clothing, and Mom says the clothes can be gently used; they do not have to be new. This is a perfect opportunities for families with girls, to look in their closets and see if they have any items which no longer fit and could be donated to this family.
We truly appreciated your help in getting them these much needed items! The sizes needed are:
