“I know what it’s like to be cold and sleep on a bench… I know what it’s like to hide behind a dumpster in the middle of the night, trying to stay warm.”
Amy arrived at City Mission a few months ago. “As I approached the Family Life Center, I suddenly got tears in my eyes. I said to myself, “I’m home… this is my home.”
Mary, a resident of our Family Life Center, knows what that feels like. Recently, she became homeless for the first time —a situation she never thought she would face.
Sean first came to City Mission because he needed something to eat and a place to sleep. Like so many others, he was hungry. He was tired. And he was scared.
