Where God Left His Shoes

Thursday night we went to a benefit showing of the movie, "Where God Left His Shoes".

All proceeds from the benefit went to C.A.T.C.H. (Charitable Assistance to Community's Homeless). CATCH is an organization designed to assist homeless families with children in Boise. It is a collaborative philanthropic effort involving the United Way, local businesses, local communities of faith, and the City of Boise. CATCH rapidly re-houses homeless families first, and then coordinates social services and case management to address the issues which contributed to the family's homelessness. Since it's launch in November of 2006, CATCH has housed and assisted almost 60 families with over 120 children. Approximately 84% of CATCH participants become self sufficient within six months.

If you, your business, or faith community would like to sponsor a homeless family with children please email

If you get the opportunity be sure to see Where God Left His Shoes . It portrays the realities of homelessness with heartbreaking clarity, while at the same time reinforcing the overwhelming power of family.

Where God Left His Shoes is available on demand through January (contact your local cable operator for more information). Gather your friends, family, and neighbors for a private showing in your home. You will be engaged and entertained...but more importantly you will be moved to action.
