"I came here scared to death, because I have never been homeless, and did not know what to expect. I believe God brought me here. The staff and volunteers here are amazing. With other residents, we are an adopted family so to speak. We take care of each other as best we can. I have never felt such overwhelming love in a community. Thank you for your love and support of Community Rescue Mission."
"At my lowest time, I found loving, accepting, caring people who welcomed me in with encouragement. They gave me hope and brought me closer to God."
"I was so scared, when I came to the Mission. The Mission saved my life, and helped me look to God to save my soul. You have truly helped us take a step forward."
"The Mission has given me a chance to start again, but this time I feel I can achieve more than I ever thought possible. I have set several goals since arriving here at The Mission: 1) Get my Indian Card, 2) Learn to read and write better, 3) Find affordable housing. Because of The Mission, and its staff, I feel I can achieve these goals with the Lord's help!"
"I have truly been blessed by everyone here. God has carried me here to reunite me in faith, hope, honesty, peace, and love. God has opened my eyes and humbled me."
"The Mission is a safe-haven to cope with all of my problems and transform them with solutions and better myself as a mom. The staff treats us with respect, not as inferiors. I never feel 'talked at' or 'talked down to.' The Mission is not just a place to sleep, eat, and shower. It is helping me step up the ladder, instead of shaking it while I climb!"
