EveryONE Matters Ministries aka EMM exists to provide transitional housing and discipleship in the name of Jesus Christ to the less fortunate, in particular the homeless. Matthew 25:35-40.
EMM’s founders, Steve and Nanette Lindner, came to the realization in mid May of 2015, that the needs of the “less fortunate” globally, nationally and even locally are overwhelming. So much so that we just give up and many times do nothing.
“We realized that it isn’t “overwhelming” if we approach the needs ONE person at a time. In other words, we can’t help everybody but we can help everyONE. Our overriding motivation is that everyone matters to God therefore everyone matters to EMM.”
– Steve Lindner
EMM became a non profit 501c3 in February 2016. Anyone is who is led to donate can receive a tax deductible donation receipt. Initially the Lindner’s used their personal resources to start purchasing used mobile homes, travel trailers, and motor homes.
EMM also partners with other non profits and churches to meet the needs where they can. EMM does not purchase anything in advance of being made aware of the need. When the need is presented EMM starts searching
for the right fit to fill the need.
