I am a client and from personal experience this organization is absolutely wonderful. I was homeless and although I had worked my entire life was dealing with 'aging out' of employment. First Fruit has given me a place to stabilize, gain self esteem and purpose, and to reconnect with God. Very few staff and some 22K of volunteer hours go into running FFM's transitional housing, Food Pantry and outreach programs - so I know that the great majority of donations & grant money go directly to serving homeless and hungry folks. It's a beautiful thing to see!
