New York City Relief, Inc.
September 11, 2012

I was honored to serve as a volunteer with the Relief Bus last week. Watching the Relief Bus missionary's care and compassion for the homeless was inspiring. To pray with and serve these lost souls was life changing for me. The tears of joy in a man's eyes when I told him he didn't need to remember the rosary prayers to talk to God and his whispered "I can pray again" after we prayed together. A woman hugging a pair of socks and saying "New?? for me?!" Smiles shared over soup and bread. Can't wait to do it again.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing joy brought to sad faces, seeing people getting help connecting to detox programs and other help. A lost soul baptized!
