You never think that you will be in a position to need the help provided by Urban Ministries. I feel we go through life thinking it is the other person that is hit with job loss, financial strife, health issues, not us. But when it does hit our own family we are devastated and lost… We have been blessed to get another chance at getting back on our feet again and I am so thankful for it…” — Joyce, one of the 24,000 people served last year.
We all feel it.
