Since my arrival here at the mission I have accomplished a lot. This is the only place that has given me the opportunity to feel human. They didnt turn their backs on me as my family has done. My children and I have been through a great deal. And the mission has helped me overcome these devestating events which have happened. I was able to find a job within the first week of being here. I have been able to get through two surgeries without losing my place in life. The mission has given hope, love and a family that I never had. The director is one of the most amazing men I have ever met in my life time. The only one who has ever showed concern for the problems that I had/have to over come. If I could be in any homeless shelter this is the one to be in. Although, we think a homeless shelter is a place to be scared that is not true. I am safe with my daughters, in the safest place I could be right now in life. If it wasnt for the Mission In Citrus I would be in the woods with my girls. We also have a good christian enviroment, a place with God.

I personally am grateful for the mission, I came here with alot of personal issues in my life. and because of the love and support i found here i have been able to overcome and live my life somewhat normally. I am a recovering addict and up until coming to the mission i was uncertain how to deal with everyday life. But, Jim took me in with open arms and has helped me with my recovery. alot of peopole take for granted the people and places that come into their lives but, i for one will not make that mistake again. The mission has given me a new lease on life. I know i can do anything that i set my mind too and there are people here who are willing to help me to make the right choices and point me in the right direction. I would like to thak everyone here at the mission, our wonderful director Jim, and all of the other people who donate their time to make our lives better.

My name is Jessica. I came to the Mission in Citrus In March of 2010. My husband and I had been living in our van for three months, we hadn't eaten in days. We were both at the end of our ropes and very suicidel. Jim, the director of the Mission took us in and he and the rest of the people of the mission have helped us turn our lives around. I am now a staff member, and have been able to defeat my problems with self mutilation and extream sucidel tendcies. My husband has been able to kick his long fight with addiction of drugs. Not only has this place changed our lives, but has shown us what we want to do with the rest of ours, help the homeless. We our expecting a baby boy within the next month and just moved in to our own home that we are buying. The mission has helped us with obtaining everything we need for our new home and our new baby. I love this place, I love the people, and I love the way we are changing the way people view the homeless.

My name is Walt. I came here from the Path after being thrown out for health issues and Jim from the Mission took me in. Jim asked me to help out at the outreach center in Hernando which is where I now reside. My health is getting better and my stress level is better then it has been. I like what I do, I like helping people, like I was helped. I belive in keeping a good christian atmosphere at the shelter, for God is love.

the mission is a great place to re-unite families. I am residing here now for the folowing reasons i had gotten into a dispute with my father and it didnt go so well. Life at my house which is located in springhill wasnt going so well. i lived there with my father and step mother. my father and i used to be so close but now ever since he aquired a new wife he's changed dramatically. i used to be able to talk to him about everything , but now i cant even ask him how his day is without something going wrong in the middle of our conversation , bottom line my relationship with my father has been askew. once i moved to a "homeless shelter" called the Mission in Citrus my life began to fufill. the people around here have shown me love like i was their own child and the love only gets stronger. day by day they help me if i am in need of something. we get along more than my father and step mom every could. we do not fight we do not argue i find it here what some intellectuals call peacfull. life here is more comforting than at my own home. then there is jim the director what a great sociable person. he helped my mother get through her hard times and took her in to help her get back on her feet. now she has a job and is working on getting her own place. jim is currently helping me get re-united with my mother. i lost contact with her for some time. i was very upset at the fact that i couldnt talk to my own mother. my mother has five kids. one is distant in new york. i am the third oldest making me 16 years of age. my two little sisters who i love dearly come on some weekends and they get to see us and i have a good time with them. they love jim. everyone who comes here has no reason to dislike him. he is a straight foward man and will go out of his way to help anyone who wants to help themselves. he has a big heart and nothing can change that. we like to think of everyone as family. we grew close to each other over the two months that i have been here. i love everyone here and they love me just as much if not more . the mission in cirtus is the best thing that could happen to me during a hard time. theirs delva... what a great lady i like to think of her as my sister she is always thinking of me and helping me through some hard times that i dont like to discuss with most. we hangout and go to the springs occasionally. their is also two men that live here their names are lee and wally. they are father figures to me and they are just out there looking out for me , trying to keep me on the right track. they will go out of their way to make me comfortable and feel at home.jay jay... this kid has been a brother to me since i have been here. he has just graduated yesterday and im so proud of him. we like to go to the springs and hangout to catch a tan. all i have to say about this is thank you everyone for all your help and support.

The mission has really helped me and my son when i came here i had hit rock bottom. I felt like i had no where to go or noone that loved me.I see that is not true, there is a bunch of people that do love me and want to see me do good.I wouldnt change where i am for anything. this is my family & they mean the world to me.I was addicted to roxicodone and xanax the mission has helped me to quit cold turkey. my drug problem happened when i lost my dad 3yrs ago and it still is hard for me to deal with that situation.If it wasnt for the mission and jim i would be dead right now. i had lost all hope and i am so happy they changed that thought and helped me get closer with god.I LOVE THE MISSION VERY VERY MUCH!!!!!!!!!

I came here after being incarcerated. I thought I had seen peoples eyes change while in there, before my eyes, but when I came here to The Mission after finding out where my husband was, coming here not only reconciled my marriage, but I have seen God's Miricles and lives changed even more than I ever expected.
It warms my heart and sole to watch the transformation of souls that have been broken by addiction, abandonment and daily life struggles. To watch this and witness it happening, is irreplaceable.
I myself am a recovering addict and I give to them what has been given to me...RECOVERY.
Most of all what I see at the Mission is God.
