Individuals and families re-enter society. Our mission includes feeding,clothing,discipling,and mentoring the homeless as they work towards re-entering society.

Extraordinary Experiences

Meet Denise.

My first interaction with this lady was anything but pleasant. She whispered to me, “I’ll kill you” then during our worship service she became very aggressive and began screaming
in anger and disrupting the service. I remember thinking what have i gotten myself into!
Denise suffers from mental illness and is very paranoid. She will be calm and pleasant one
minute and then without warning she explodes.
After being around her for a couple of months I developed a bond with Denise. I remember
during one of her episodes she turned and pointed at me and declared “not guilty”
As of that moment a trust was formed and now when Denise becomes upset I am able to simply
walk up to her and she immediately calms down.
Just one of the many stories of how small steps make a huge difference!
