Desert Manna Ministries was founded in 1981 and incorporated as a nonprofit charity in 1986. The organization provides services to assist low-income and homeless populations to obtain permanent housing and income so they can become economically independent.
“It can be surprising how much homelessness can have an impact on the rest of the community,” said Supervisor Derry. “The cost of hospitalization, medical treatment, incarceration, police intervention, and emergency shelter expenses can be quite expensive for taxpayers.”
Desert Manna serves the community by providing: shelter, free lunch, dinner, daily bread and pastries, transportation assistance, USDA surplus food commodities, assistance applying for benefits referrals to other agencies and assistance obtaining ID’s and birth certificates.
“Efforts to eradicate homelessness are essential to the greater mission of preserving and enhancing the quality of life of all San Bernardino County residents,” Supervisor Derry stated. “By supporting the ethical undertaking of Dessert Manna Ministries, we afford community members the opportunity to regain their footing in this tough economy.”
