We are into the final week of the house renovation project on a house in downtown Forney. We've leveled the foundation (10" low in one corner!), redone the kitchen, replaced siding…etc. It will need a new roof, major plumbing and electrical work and lots of interior fixes. This is the home of an elderly lady who keeps the house beautifully, but fights the leaking roof and rotting floors, and leaking pipes…
The budget for this project is about $18,000, and the work is extensive. This is truly a cooperative project, as all the partners of FCM are pitching in with their respective talents and abilities.
The Community Life Church (CLife) - ReBuild Team is taking a major role in the project, while Connect Church, Sharing the Love Foundation, Hunger Relief Ministries, Fellowship Church and the Lions Club are all helping with various aspects, including hands-on volunteering.
Please join us if you want to help! You can Donate via the button on this page, or volunteer your time (just let us know when you're available!).

Our Forney ISD students need school supplies and uniforms! With Forney ISD's leadership, FCM is bringing the backpacks and uniforms effort together into one big, cooperative effort.
Thank you to Stiky Ribz BBQ and Infinity Air for their generous $3,500 donation to this program!!
FCM frequently receives a growing number of requests for utilities and rent assistance. Many of these come through Forney ISD, as the teachers and counselors learn about troubles at home. Frequently, the assistance needed is more than $500, and other needs are present also. Needless to say, this requires money to overcome the problem. But we can only give from what we have available via donations from people like you.
If you would like to help FCM meet these needs, please use the "Donate" button below, and direct it to "Utilities & Rent Assistance". We thank you for your contributions. FCM does its best to verify the authenticity of the need, and makes a personal visit with the recipients of assistance.
ALL of the funds donated go to the cause specified, and are tax deductible. Funding for FCM overhead is managed through donations from its Board of Directors.
All funds received by Forney Community Ministries go directly to their designated purpose. Since FCM is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all donations are fully tax deductible.
