CITY RESCUE MISSION

Tamara's Story


Money can be tight for Tamara’s family. “Sometimes we have very little money left after paying our bills and it’s difficult to even put food on the table,” she shares.  When she struggles to make ends meet, the Mission is always there to help.

 

Tamara heard about the Mission from some friends and called the Family Care Ministry to see if they could provide her with grocery assistance. “When I first contacted the Mission, they were able to give me groceries that very same day. I was treated with kindness and compassion.” She was most thankful for being able to provide her children with well balanced, nutritional meals.

 

Like all mothers, Tamara does not want her children to ever feel the burden of her financial struggles. “We want our children to have normal lives and not feel like they’re missing out. We want them to have every opportunity, but sometimes we just don’t have the money,” she shares.

"The Mission treats me with kindness and compassion"

This is why the School Supplies Drive is such a blessing to families in need with children. Because of generous donors, children are able to receive the tools they need to start off the school year on the right foot. The Mission distributes stylish backpacks filled with school supplies so every child has an equal chance for success!


“We would really be struggling without the Mission. I can’t imagine what our lives would be like without this extra help. My family is so thankful,” shares Tamara.
