Welcome to Association of Faith Communities
We are committed to honor the faith communities of Santa Cruz County in their myriad forms as they work to fulfill God's call to serve those in need.
Serving Santa Cruz County
Helping those who are suffering due to injustice, poverty, homelessness or disability.
Since 2012, the AFC has been sponsoring nightly transitional shelter at ten faith communities from Santa Cruz to Aptos. We are able to do so for about $11.00 a night per participant because we depend upon donated space and volunteer cooks. .
Last year and again this coming year the AFC will shelter and feed up to 100 people per night during the coldest and wettest months of the year.
Socks. People need socks. And homeless folks go through them fast. SPIN has distributed over 23,000 pair of socks a area shelters and food kitchens.
Every faith community is invited to join the AFC. Come help relieve the suffering that living without shelter causes. Be in fellowship with those who are struggling. Bring to your congregation a better understanding that we are all God's people.
AFC needs cooks, food servers, planners, fundraisers, caring people to assist those without homes to a better life.
