SHIELD616 was formed with the peace officer on patrol in mind. They have since seen the need to help protect all first responders. The goal of SHIELD616 is two-fold.
First, to equip every first responder with necessary, advanced active-shooter/crowd control gear. Second, to provide a support group for that first responder who will pray for the first responder and his or her family on a daily basis and shower the first responder with support and encouragement throughout the year.
ABEFC has been able to outfit 14 police officers with protective gear and match them with a family in our church for ongoing prayer and support.
Springs Rescue Mission provides critically needed food, shelter, clothing and services to our Colorado Springs neighbors experiencing homelessness, poverty and addiction. ABEFC partners through financial support, donations, and volunteers.
