Dan Ryan and Dan Ryan Builders were proud to present a check of $100,000 to the Frederick Rescue Mission to support the Faith House Capital Campaign. As renovations will soon be underway at the 731 North Market Street location, the current Interfaith Housing Alliance building, this generous donation gives the Rescue Mission the boost they need to get the Faith House up and running.
Dan Ryan, CEO and President of Dan Ryan Builders and longtime Frederick resident, hopes this step of faith starts a chain reaction for others to become partners in changing the lives of the area’s women and children in need- in both financial and service capacities. “The Rescue Mission has been a vital part of Frederick for the past 50 Years,” states Dan, “and now they are stepping out in faith to grow their impact and we need to step up as well”.
“We are so excited for this boost to the Capital Campaign for Faith House,” states Tommy Skaggs, the Frederick Rescue Mission’s Director of Development, “but there is also more work to be done. As with any renovation and startup there are unexpected costs. We hope Dan Ryan’s donation will inspire others to give and join our pledge drive as well as support through in-kind service”.
Ways the Community Can Support – see the Mission’s Website for Details:
- Financial Support through the Mission’s Pledge Drive or a Donation
- Purchase Supplies for the Faith House off their Amazon Wish list
- Organize a Volunteer Day with your church or company to work at the Faith House or to Sponsor a Room.
The Frederick Rescue Mission’s Faith House will provide a safe refuge for these women to get off the streets, as well as provide a case manager to remedy many of the underlying causes of their homelessness as well as assist women in the areas of spiritual and emotional needs.
