LAKEWOOD, CO – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Hands of the Carpenter of Lakewood, CO.
ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising. Hands of the Carpenter joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries
across America, supported by over 27 million donors that have earned the right to display the ECFA seal. When an organization is accredited by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability.
“We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to removing obstacles that prevent responsible single mothers and widows within Metro-Denver from reaching and maintaining self-sufficiency,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.
Founded in 2003, Hands of the Carpenter (www.ehands.org) provides automobile repair and maintenance for low-income single mothers and widows in need so that they can reach and maintain self-sufficiency.
