Help the Norths

Steve North and his family need your help after a devastating fire leaves them homeless, with only the clothes on their backs.

This is the second time the Norths have lost everything in a house fire. Their first house, a historic property in Toledo's Old West End, was destroyed by a fire in 2011. After rebuilding their lives, thanks to the support of the community he serves and loves, they are once again faced with tragedy.

Steve has been relentless in his efforts to end the cycle of poverty and provide life-saving medical help for Toledo's poor and unhoused. His organization, LifeLine, has a mobile medical unit that, in Steve's words, has "conducted nearly 200 mobile clinics, serving more than 1000 people living in poverty - the unhoused, migrants, refugees, and more." He also hosts monthly dinners at his home, and feeds everyone there free of charge.

It's our turn to help the helper. The Norths need literally everything. A donation of any amount will make a difference. When starting over, everything counts.

100% of your donation will go directly to Steve and his family. For more information on Steve's work in the community, visit Your help is greatly appreciated.
