When the pandemic swept through Detroit last year, it impacted the lives of so many . . . but it brought Aaron* to his knees.
He was already facing homelessness, which is scary enough as it is. But to be homeless during a global health crisis can be deadly.
DRMM’s doors are always open for those in Aaron’s situation because, with the help of friends like you, the Mission continues our outreach to Detroit’s hungry and homeless—one of the most vulnerable populations to the virus.
“COVID was bad. With the shutdown of the city, I became homeless so quickly,” Aaron says, shaking his head at the memory.
Because you support DRMM, Aaron and thousands of other men, women, and children found safe shelter, hot meals, and life-saving care during those frightening days and nights.
With all my heart, I wish I could say the crisis is over. But, far too many people in our community are facing unemployment, homelessness, hunger, and hopelessness . . .
“What was good was the way DRMM opened up for a lot of people who fell on hardship. It was bad out there,” Aaron says of the plight of the homeless.
“Nowhere to go. Fighting for survival. Hungry. No clothes.”
Aaron is grateful for the meals and emergency care he has received, and he’s encouraged knowing that others in the community are getting the help they urgently need, too—all because caring friends like you choose to support DRMM.
“I’d like to say ‘thank you’ to the donors. May God bless them,” he says. “This is a God community, so I’m living every day thankful to God.”
Please share a gift today to help more neighbors like Aaron because every day in April, we will provide nearly 5,000 meals to neighbors who turn to DRMM for food, shelter, and hope for a new life. Thank you for standing with us to meet critical needs throughout our community as we share the mercy and love of Christ with every soul He sends our way!Give Meals and Hope Now!
