Robert's Story

Extensive medical conditions have left both Robert and his wife unable to work. Struggling financially, Robert needed a way to provide food for his family. After walking miles to a church for assistance, the church staff told him about how he could get help at the City Rescue Mission. “I called the Mission that day and they were able to give me groceries. I was so grateful for their help,” said Robert. He has been turning to the Mission for assistance ever since. Holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas have become more special for his family because of the Mission.

"They're like family to me. They're such warm and kind people."

“I love all the food they give us, especially in the Thanksgiving Baskets.  It’s all delicious, but also healthy.” Not only does Robert enjoy the food he receives, he is always happy to see the staff each time he visits. “They’re like family to me. They’re such warm and kind people. I love seeing how much they actually care and want to help others. I’ve grown really close to them,” he shares. Because of generous partners and a caring staff, Robert is able to care for his family. He is so touched by the help he receives at the Mission and he hopes to be in better health one day so he can volunteer and give back.
