Reviews for Gps Ministries Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

GPS is truly a Blessing, They have helped me, my family, and many others more than words can say, They help with food and many other wonderful things a person needs, Once You walk in the door they make u feel welcomed and very comfortable, alot of people feel sad and sometimes embarrassed to ask for help, but GPS never looks at a person in any negative way they are always smiling and wanting to help You in any way they can, I dont know what I or many other people would do without them, Thank You GPS for everything you do, and I am honored and Blessed that I have gotten the chance to get to know You, Everything You Do Means Alot

I had just moved out on my own. Got my first apartment boy i thought . was gonna be a piece of cake. Reality sat in bills came more than my income was budgeted for. I came to GPS ministries where i meet PJ. She know i was in distress when i walked thru the door. We talked and prayed she helped me to understand that all people go thru changes in their life. She helped me with food, meats,sweets and toiletry items.Before i lefted i know this is a place where i felted the love and compassion. The staff was just as wonderful as she was. So now i volunteer.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I came to GPS MINISTRIES as a client in 2013, I joined this ministry as a volunteer in many different areas, I don't volunteer at this time, however I still do what I can to help any way I can, wether its food donations, monetary ect.This ministry is very different from those in this community and surrounding communities.When you come to this ministry (GPS) you get fed Spiritually as well, and you're not treated as statistic, you're treated like a child of GOD and you become part of a family regardless of who you are or what your past may be. GPS MINISTRIES is more than a food pantry, they offer a large range of services, including job skills,adult bible study,children snack pack program, kids power hour ect. If you would like to help this community, start with this ministry. Check out the website and learn what they are all about.
