Great news story on our progress with the roof!



Here you will find information concerning our alliance of churches, schools, community leaders, service organizations and agencies. Hundreds of people are facing homeless or near-homeless situations right here in our community.  As a community, Mt. Vernon and the surrounding Jefferson County can do better.  We can reach out with the transforming hand of Christ to those who have great need.

We are currently building our alliance of those who share our passion for ministering to the homeless.  If you would like to get involved, follow our progress on this website and contact us at LifeboatAlliance@gmail.com.
