CITY RESCUE MISSION

Sherrie's Story


Raising four kids as a single mom is not an easy task, especially while on disability. When money gets tight, Sherrie comes to the Mission’s Family Care Ministry for grocery assistance and help with caring for her children. “The Mission has helped me to keep my kids warm and fed through the winter months. For years we’ve been able to come here for hats, scarves, and gloves. It’s made a huge difference.”

 

Sherrie realizes that this ministry would not be possible without the support of generous donors. “If it wasn’t for donors, my family wouldn’t make it.” The best part is that coming to the Mission has not only helped meet Sherrie’s physical needs, but also her spiritual needs. “When I come here for grocery assistance, the staff prays with me. They’ve helped me grow in my faith,” she shares. This support has led Sherrie to finding a church and praying with her children each night.

"The Mission has had a huge impact on my life."

Even the holidays are brighter for Sherrie and her family when she receives help from the Mission. “I love coming here for Christmas gift assistance! Without the help, I wouldn’t have gifts to give my children. They made the holiday more special.” Because of the Mission’s supporters, Sherrie is able to receive the help she needs to care for her children, and her life has been forever changed.  “The Mission has had a huge impact on my life. They’ve helped me to focus on my kids and church. I don’t know what I’d do without them. They support me in so many ways.”
