ABUNDANT LIFE MISSION
Who is the face of the homeless?
Is it a veteran suffering the effects of PTSD? Or a young mother who has nowhere to go? Could it be an elderly person without family? Maybe it's a family who has been displaced because of a house fire or job loss. Some are fighting the effects of substance abuse and mental illness. Each has their story. The joyous ending is up to us.
The face of the homeless could be you. The face is not someone in a third world country or a metropolitan city. It's someone right here in our community. Many Americans are a paycheck away from being homeless. The sad reality is that many are children. A warm bed, a hot meal, and hope can make the difference in a life.
Not a hand out but a HAND UP!
We all deserve a second, third, or as many chances as it takes to rebuild our lives. Who among us hasn't had hard times where someone's help and kindness made all the difference?
YOU can be that person. YOU can make a difference. YOU can pay it forward. The longest journey begins with a single step. Take that step today.
