MY FATHERS HOUSE A COMMUNITY SHELTER INC
December 9, 2013

I really don't know where to start. It would sound like an over dramatic statement if I said something like "My Fathers House saved my life and kept my family from being torn apart" but in a very real way, they did. I had no hopes for a job when we (my ten month old son, his mother, and I) were evicted from our apartment. No relative or friend would take us in as a group and we were determined to stay together. We were told about My Fathers House and had a hard time believing it... it sounded too good to be true. But, thank God, it wasn't! We were treated with kindness and respect. No one EVER made me feel like I was being looked down on. I felt real love from everyone from the Exective Director to my Growth Leader ( who happened to be the E.D.'s husband :D ) to all of the staff and volunteers... they all REALLY wanted me and my family to succeed. When you are totally down and out, most of the time you really don't want/need a hand out. In most cases, what would be best is a hand up. At My Fathers House, that's exactly what we got.
