“Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will be equality, as it is written: “He who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little did not have too little.’ ” 2 Corinthians 8:13-15
In order to help individuals find freedom from debt, we offer a variety of suggestions on how to cut costs and live more by faith versus credit. We recommend that individuals contact local churches in their areas for counsel and also utilize our resources listed below.

Clothing Source – Sharing Pantry
Because of God’s promise to clothe us each day, Faith Acres Foundation operates the Clothing Source (a clothing pantry). Guests are able to choose clothing for themselves and their family members whenever they visit. Because we have a God who showers us with the best of things, we only want to give out quality clothing. We will only accept donations of clean, gently used clothing without stains. Please go to our DONATIONS page for a list of items we accept.
Times are hard, money is tight, and debt is out of control! The Sharing Garage is where we store good, quality items that we “share” with people. If you have a need for a piece of furniture but don’t have the financial capability to purchase it, don’t simply buy it on credit! God has the ability to provide you with that item! Do we have enough faith in God’s love for us to sit back and see how He can provide in a crazy sort of way? It builds faith and patience, and gives you amazing stories to tell. Please call if you are in need of anything specific, we will pray with you for that gift.
Read some of our Faith Walks stories to learn about how God has already provided families and individuals at Faith Acres Foundation with necessary items through the power of prayer and faith.
