I recently heard of GPS and PJ. I went in to meet her. She is a blessing to be around. She's is always serving people who need help. I had volunteered with her. I watched how she was with her clients. Her clients are always made welcome as soon as they come in the door. I think what I like most is how it's only about the clients. I can't even begin to say enough about GPS and PJ. Thank you for all you do to help the people in need.

My wife and I have always been pleased with the level of service and dedication GPS shows for those who need food assistance. Far from a stop to pick up some meals, PJ engaged my wife cordially every time she stopped in and made an uncommonly remarkable impression. When my wife offered to volunteer and told me PJ could use someone with my skills, I jumped at the prospect of being able to not only give back but further what PJ and GPS Ministries do.

Instead of being a place to drop in and donate a few hours, the culture here makes it so that even when we're not present we're still trying to find ways to help GPS. There is no question in my mind that my wife and I are dedicated to the cause not only because we ourselves have been in need and been helped, but because PJ is such an enthusiastic, efficient, and empathetic individual,

Being on this side of the desk has been an uplifting and educating experience. PJ cares for each client and grants them rights that often go unnoticed in other similar venues: privacy, respect, and friendliness.

I am a new volunteer at GPS Ministries. I have seen a true genuineness that this ministry, and the individuals that are involved, have for those who are going through difficult times. They give a great deal of themselves to accomplish what they can in each individual situation. They are very appreciative of the donations whether it be food , financial support, etc. that they receive to accomplish what's in their heart to do. I'm blessed to be a part of this ministry.

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.
