CITY RESCUE MISSION


Allan's Story


Allan had nothing but the clothes on his back and a few blankets when he became homeless.  "I lost everything. I could no longer afford my home or any of my belongings. I went to the library to stay warm. I felt depressed and didn't know where to go or what was going to happen to me." He felt hopeless until he was blessed to receive a ride to the City Rescue Mission where he found a warm welcome.

"It was cold outside and I was so thankful for
the gift of a warm and comfortable bed to sleep in." - Allan

"When I got to the Mission everyone was nice to me and even got me something hot to eat before I went to sleep. It was cold outside and I was so thankful for the gift of a warm and comfortable bed to sleep in." Once Allan's physical needs were met, he began to focus on his spiritual needs. He then decided to join the Mission's Recovery Program so he could grow closer to the Lord.


Today, Allan is grateful for the support and encouragement he receives in the Recovery Program. He also enjoys having responsibilities such as cooking in the kitchen for community meals. "It's amazing that the Mission prepares hot meals every single day for the community. I love cooking and it feels good to be able to give back." Allan is happy to be in a safe, warm shelter where is supported physically, emotionally, and spiritually. He is thankful to all the Mission's donors and supporters for providing for his needs.
