Taking My Life Back

When I came to Greensboro Urban Ministry, I was a pastor and a military veteran, yet I had no home. I felt like nobody cared, and my heart was so broken.

I looked at the resources available to me, and I said, ‘I’m going to embrace what they have here for me.’

I began working with my case manager. She showed me how to research jobs, budget my money and find transportation. She goes over and beyond for her clients – it’s more than a job for her, it’s a ministry.

When I moved into my apartment, Greensboro Urban Ministry gave me dishes, pot and pans, groceries, a blanket and a bed. I truly enjoy sitting at my desk. I read, I prepare sermons and I write poetry. It just makes me feel so much better in my life to have my own place.
