I am very blessed to serve the homeless and they bless me daily!
Being director is one of my greatest joys. There is no better place to be than being able to do what Jesus has called and provided for me to do. I was called here by the Lord and there is no doubt in my mind. Now we will see what He wants to do! Please drop by any time during office hours. 9-4 pm
