Living in the suburbs, Terrell* relied heavily on his vehicle to make the commute to his job. So when his car broke down, he was unable to find a reliable way to get to work and lost his job. Frantically cutting expenses until he could find employment and reliable transportation, Terrell moved in with his cousin.
But the arrangement was temporary and Terrell had to move out before he could secure a new job and purchase another car.
Terrell was shocked and frightened to admit the truth—that he was without transportation, a job, and a home! That’s when someone told him Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (DRMM) was a place filled with caring people who will go the extra mile to help a veteran or anyone else in need.
He thought it sounded too good to be true, but when Terrell first came through the Mission doors, he found real solutions to his problems. He received good hot meals and transitional housing while he looked for work. And he saw other veterans getting the help they needed too, through employment and job counseling, substance abuse treatment, and so much more.
Terrell is grateful for caring friends and donors who support DRMM and our outreach to our nation’s veterans. He knows that your partnership is the reason he got the help he needed to get back on his feet. Thank you for giving generously to help those who fought for our freedoms and way of life!
