A YOUNG MOTHER IS PRAYING She knows her baby needs a warm safe home but she doesn"t have the money for a deposit.

A DAD IS PRAYING TOO He found a job but now the car won't start and there is no money to buy a battery till payday and no payday if he cant get a way to go to work.

A SILENT FIGURE PASSES BY He is looking for a few more cans to sell. He used to have a good job but the factory moved away. He got some unemployment for a while but it ran out and no one seems to want to hire a 60 year old with a bad back.

TWO CHILDREN ARE SLEEPING IN A CAR They still have bad dreams about the fire that destroyed their trailer and its cold even wrapped up in mamas coat. Mama must be even colder without it as she tries to figure out how to have a home again.

A FAMILY REJOICES They don't have a lot of things but in their hearts they found the love that made them want to help their neighbors. They know someone has a home and food because they care.

We appreciate Tripod making this site available free. Because the site is free Tripod places banners on the site to meet expenses. Banners change and we have no control over what is in the banners but if you find one offensive please let us know and we will talk with Tripod to see what can be done about it. 

About names and photos: All stories about clients in these pages and links are real. Names have been changed to protect the person's privacy and prevent them from being embarrassed. For the same reasons we use stock and clip art photos rather than pictures of people we help. We do not want children and teens who comes across the site on net at school to see their picture or their friends or grandparents picture and be embarrassed in front of their friends etc
