This wonderful group reached out to my daughter when she was at her lowest point in a female prison. They wrote letters to her and helped her with a bus ticket upon her release and with housing/job assistance once she arrived into town. Today my daughter is a productive member of the community, working in a law office, playing sports such as softball and kickball in her spare time. Most importantly Grace Ministry helped my husband and I as much as our daughter by lifting her up and helping her to mature and become the beautiful person that we thought we had lost.
I was in jail so worried I would be back on the streets again homeless when I got put. They picked me up from jail let me go to church with them and then took me to a safe structured environment where they paid my rent for 3 months.. I'm just one of the very many lost girls they do this for !!! True women of God who devote there entire lives to helping others.
I have struggled with addiction for years...when I was ready to change Grace was there for me. Someone wrote me the whole time I was incarcerated and when I got our they helped me get clothes and other things I needed to start working. Now I still have my job, I'm clean and sober and I know that if I need anything their hand will be there.
I was on the streets of Jacksonville feeling very hopeless. I was a slave to heroin and cocaine, shooting up several times a day, selling my soul for it. Kathleen McDaniel and others continuously reached out over the months giving a goody bag, prayer and offering a better life. The third time we met just seeing this Godly woman convicted my spirit. I decided to get their help. She drove me to and picked me up from detox. They paid my way in a sober living house, even got me an interview that landed me a job within two weeks. Kathleen visits me weekly and always brings me nice clothes and lifts my spirits, giving me confidence to get another part time job to be self sufficient. Her story also gave me the courage to follow through with celebrating my first full month in sobriety!! She even picked out a very hands on sponsor who picks me up for church!! Grace Ministry changed my life!!
