Summer is looming like an ominous storm for struggling moms and children. Many can’t afford food to replace school breakfast and lunch, much less additional care to keep their children safe all day when school lets out.
Hand-me-down clothes and worn-out shoes may seem hard on a child, but nagging hunger is a far worse prospect.
Crime, mosquitoes, heat and few bathrooms make the
streets unbearable. Every meal can change a life!
We urgently need your meals now. Each $2 you send welcomes in one person with dignity and kindness, and a plate of nutritious food that reflects the love of Christ.
Many are already bouncing from couch to couch, their child struggling to keep up in school. We are the third largest shelter for families, and the only Christian long-term recovery program for women. Without your support, a lot of families would have nowhere to go. If enough friends respond, we plan to provide some outings to help make this a happier summer for homeless children.
