When Anthony was homeless, he came to the Men’s Crossroads Emergency Shelter where he received food, shelter and job search assistance to get back on his feet. It was the first time he heard about Christ, since he grew up in a Muslim household.
“I was grateful for the help I received and always stayed in touch. I came to the Mission for community meals once in a while and I went to all of the holiday meals and celebrations. I even stayed for chapel services.” But Anthony knew he needed more than physical help. Some bad decisions took a toll on his life and everything began to fall apart.
