About Our Gap Program

Gap provides items that fall through the “gap” of services offered in the community. Examples of needs include:

  • Uniforms for a new job
  • Twin mattress
  • Non-narcotic medications
  • Lice Treatment
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Detergent
  • Electric Heaters/fans
  • Window AC units
  • Gas for MD appointments
  • Auto Parts

Needs such as utilities, rent assistance, clothing, and food covered by other agencies would not qualify. Hotel stays are also excluded. Needs are considered based on individual situations and limited to twice per year per family.


Thanks so much to the East Tennessee Foundation for their support of our Gap Program!!

Wendy & Sam's Story

To respect our community member's privacy we are not using their real names.
Wendy and her adult developmentally disabled son, Sam, moved here from New York to find more affordable housing. Initially, they were able to rent a home with a couple to save money, but eventually, the arrangement ended, leaving them homeless and living in their car. We had the privilege of meeting them at the point that Sam was about to start his first job. He needed a uniform but did not have the money to purchase it. We met them at the store where he enthusiastically picked out a pair of size 13 sneakers that he thought would be fine. However, since they were the bottom of the line sneakers, and he was a large man, we selected a better-quality shoe that had straps which were easier for him to use. He thought they were too expensive, but we assured him they were the best choice. Trying them on, he broke into a huge smile saying that they were so comfortable. This was very important because he would be on his feet ten hours a day. He and his mother were most appreciative of the ministry for providing his uniform so he could start work.
