The Commission on Poverty and Homeless has been in existence for many years. They are made up of representatives from each convocation and meet three times a year. Their specific task is to distribute the funds gathered from the churches at in-gatherings at Thanksgiving, and the monies taken in from the basket raffle held during convention. Each year ministries of the churches apply for monies and can receive up to $1000 to help support their work on the behalf of the poor and homeless.
