National Sleep Out
November 18th, 2021
We signed on to Sleep Out on behalf of young people overcoming homelessness at Covenant House.
We gave up our bed for the night to raise funds and awareness for the nearly 4.2 million young people who experience homelessness each year. We did this in solidarity with the resilient young people who have faced and have overcome homelessness.
National Sleep Out is not a night of pretending, and it's not a slumber party.
Covenant House's mission is to ensure that all youth has a safe place to turn to where they feel loved and respected. And they need our help to meet the urgent challenges they're facing, helping young people get back on their feet as we continue through this pandemic. If you can, please consider donating any size to honor the incredibly resilient young people at Covenant House.
Participating in this event is a blessing because just walking around San Antonio & other cities, we see a considerable number of displaced individuals, and there's no telling how many of them are children barely surviving on the streets. Please consider these circumstances and how easily their situation can put them in a vulnerable position, forcing them to be in dangerous situations.
We are a "Ministry without walls" looking to help support, encourage, educate and train foster care youth/young adults who have aged out of the program, typically between ages 16-24 years old.
Did you know that after reaching the age of 18, 20% of the children who were in foster care will come instantly homeless?
Did you know that only 1 out of every two foster kids who age out of the system will have some form of gainful employment by the age of 24?
Join us as we support organizations working toward a common goal to create hope for a better future.
November 21st, 2021
It's Already Done Ministries, and other local organizations joined 412Threads to ensure this would be a successful event for the community. The stuffed swag bags were full of resources as the families remained in their cars, music played, and volunteers encouraged the guest with friendly conversation. Turkeys were passed through the car windows, and the families entered one way with the local police directing them to the exit with smiles.
Since 2020, 412Threads has served hundreds of Texas inmates by placing Bibles, books, and letters into their hands by selling head-turning, fashion-forward clothing. From helping 150 kids get ready for a new school year to help students get haircuts to start the year off fresh, we are excited to be bringers of hope to the city of San Antonio. As we expand, our goal is to increase our outreach and positive presence in communities in our great city. We have several events planned to raise awareness to reach this goal, including our first annual drive-thru turkey event at Edgewood ISD’s Veterans Stadium. We are looking to expand a total of $6,000 to help purchase 400 turkeys from the San Antonio Food Bank.
15th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner
Last Chance Ministries
November 21, 2021
It's Already Done Ministries (IADM) and other local businesses provided resources to help ensure this event was successful. We were vendors sharing about our mission for Aging-Out youth, foster care for young adults, and our mission for a transition home.
(LCM) at 404 Brady Blvd, San Antonio, TX, provided tables to eat and fellowship for over 1000 in our San Antonio community along with fun, games, and prizes.
Every Family received plates for later, along with an opportunity to take a Turkey home for Thanksgiving Day.
6th Annual Operation Turkey
November 25, 2021
Many community members dedicated their Thanksgiving morning until noon at the 6th Annual Operation Turkey San Antonio. It's Already Done Ministries and Spirit Wolf Therapeutic Intervention was on board with the community volunteering.
The process began the day before cooking turkeys; lots of meal prep was required. On Thanksgiving, it was a rainy day, but that didn't slow people from arriving as individuals, families, churches, military members, businesses, and sororities without titles, just huge HEARTS.
We served 3000 families in Bexar County; registration was required in advance. (volunteers delivered 1500 pre-ordered meals in their personnel vehicles) to seniors and families while (1500 meals were prepared with the remaining food) for our displaced community. This included anyone, not in a shelter or homeless; we located individuals and families avoiding the elements under bridges while others were walking the streets. Everyone identified received a hot meal and a kind word.
Stay connected as we continue to serve the community with other organizations making a difference that seems small but leaves a significant impact.
