City Gospel Mission
November 29, 2011

When moving to Cincinnati over 7 years ago I wanted to find an organization to involve myself with that focused their efforts on the less fortunate. Some people can’t control their environment or the cards that are dealt to them. Others make poor decisions. Regardless, I felt that both groups need and deserve help from the community they live in. I reached out to several organizations to discuss my desire to help. From the initial conversation with City Gospel Mission, their professionalism and passion caught my eye. Once I truly understood what CGM was about, I knew I found my home. I knew their speedy responsiveness to my inquiries and the ability to plug me in quickly had to translate to dedicated people serving our community and those of need. I was correct.

My roles over the years have been assisting at events, whether celebratory or banquet/fundraising. At these events, my part of volunteering is helpful but miniscule compared to what City Gospel Mission and staff do for others. It is truly hard to articulate in words the difference that CGM has made in peoples lives. I have witnessed this first hand from people on stage speaking to their struggles and accomplishments…from kids who had everything stacked against them and received the needed guidance, confidence and education to grow into productive members of society ….to former homeless people who ran in the flying pig and followed through on a long term promise they made to themselves….to recovering addicts who completely turned their lives around in the Exodus program to then volunteer and help others heading down the previous path they once walked. All are truly remarkable stories and you have to attend one of the many events to truly understand how City Gospel Mission impacts those around us.

The above is a small example of what I have witnessed over the years and I applaud the people of City Gospel Mission. We all need to do our part to help organizations like City Gospel Mission. They do their part and more to help our community.
