How your monthly gift will be used

At Knox Area Rescue Ministries, we are committed to financial transparency and biblical stewardship.

KARM is supported by the gifts of friends and receives no federal funding to shelter the homeless. Here’s how ministry funds are used:

Life restoration begins with you!

For the 5,000 new faces that walk through KARM’s doors each year, there are 5,000 stories and reasons for homelessness. By giving monthly, you become a crucial part of rewriting their stories and healing broken lives.

Three of the stories our monthly donors have helped rewrite!

“You're at the right place at the right time with the right people for the right reasons. That's the greatest starting point.”

T.K.

“They love you where you are and they help you grow from there. They teach you responsibility that you never had before — or have lost. I'm forever grateful for Serenity, the volunteers and the donors.”

Cassie

“This is what I wanted, a new start. The biggest thing for me is knowing God is there. I was in such a bad place. I don't know where I'd be if I hadn't come here.”
