Where Do Contributions for KARM Go?
There has been a lot of attention to the issue of homeless in Knoxville. The failed experiment of the Ten Year Plan to End Chronic Homeless. One of my Shock And Awe sources sent me this link that reveals that KARM (Knox Area Rescue Ministries) took a Presidents meeting to the luxurious Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC in April 2011 (about 14 months ago)
The blog post says "The next morning I went to The Grove Park Inn for the President’s Gathering for the Knoxville Area Rescue Ministries (KARM)." and then a description of KARM's ministry, "KARM is a ministry that seeks to treat the whole person regardless of need. They meet the folks where they are and help them find the healing and restoration that is so badly needed. Whether it is a place to stay, a meal, marketable skill, counselling – KARM seeks to be the hands and feet of Jesus."
I would like to hear from many of you (the readers) of Shock And Awe if you believe that this is where you believe that dollars donated for the homeless should be spent on a retreat meeting to the Grove Park Inn.
