Thank you for supporting the renovation of our future home...

Progress in the Journey to Emmaus

Through the generosity, faith, and commitment of our supporters, we have met and exceeded our $60,000 goal, matched dollar for dollar, to renovate our new home at 3315 70th Street in Urbandale.

Our Journey to Emmaus Continues

The matching grant has been extended -- any donations made by November 30, 2020 will be matched by our benefactor up to an additional $40,000, which will make the total grant $100,000. These additional funds will help to accelerate planned future renovation and furnish our new home.

The Spirit of Jesus instills trust and urges us that now is the appointed time to act.

It is with great pleasure that I announce to you the purchase of a new home for Emmaus House.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff of Emmaus House, we are delighted that our quest for a new home has at last come to fruition. Drawing from the grace of your support and prayers, Emmaus House will continue to serve as an "oasis of quiet in the midst of the busyness of life."
