Sometimes when people hear about the work of Stauros they ask, “Is there any way in which I can be of some help?” Our answer is “Yes”!ExampleOne of the most practical steps you can take is to commit to a lifestyle that is alcohol and drug free. There is no compulsion to be a total abstainer, but it is a practical step people sometimes take in order to set a good example for “the weaker brother”.FinanceStauros is a faith-based agency that is supported financially by individuals and trusts who share our belief in the Christian message, and our burden for those touched by addiction. We do not receive government funding for any aspect of our work, and are totally reliant on the generosity of God’s people. At the back of this booklet there is further information about giving to Stauros.PrayerPerhaps the most effective way you can help us is to pray for us. This booklet is designed to help you pray effectively for people and the problems they face. It is designed to inform your prayers with details to inspire depth and substance.Financial informationStauros is grateful to the Lord for all His provision over the years.
