Ruach is a Hebrew word that describes the spirit of God. Loosely translated it means breath or spirit. In effect, we are The House of God's Spirit.
Not at this time.
We determine the human needs we will address based on the matters that are brought to us by our volunteers and our Board of Directors, who regularly see need and want to address it. We rely on our own observations of what needs to be done to make the world a place where God would want to live.
No. However, the House of Ruach does give cash to homeless people on the streets, particularly during the cold, wet months of winter. We give enough cash to eat for a few days, perhaps stay in a motel, and purchase items needed to survive. Quite simply, we hand money to people in need, when we meet them; this is not a formal giving process, nor are the funds distributed via any organization other than the House of Ruach's volunteers.
No, all workers are volunteers, who give of their time, intellect, and heart freely and without salary. This includes the Executive Director, the General Manager, and those responsible for overseeing funding initiatives.
No, the House of Ruach is grateful for the free use of office space, thereby allowing all funds to be focused on giving initiatives.
Fee for service. Since 2009, its Executive Director has not received one penny in personal income or salary, preferring that all services provided, e.g., expert witness assignments, counseling sessions (via previous counseling initiatives), book royalties, etc., to be paid directly to the House of Ruach.
