LIFE SAVER MINISTRIES INC
January 27, 2010

I have been volunteering with Life Saver Ministries for over three years. This organization provides not only the basic needs for pregnant and parenting teens, but also provides the training, classes, and opportunities that are necessary for these moms to take care of their families on their own. This organization seeks to bring the love of Christ to the people they serve, and they truly do. This house becomes a home to those who come through the door.

The Great!

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

I had the chance to tutor a mom for her GED who had lived at the house several years ago. She had been a new immigrant to this country and was a young mom. I got to see her living independently and providing for herself and her daughter.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the staff meet the mothers where they are at, and teach them in ways that are best for the mom's needs and the needs of her child. I really love that the organization gives glory to God, and relies on him to provide for them.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Staff and volunteer vary greatly in age and experience, but share one common purpose- showing love to the moms and their babies, and helping the moms grow as independent women.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Start other similar houses in other poor urban areas of Massachusetts, perhaps in a town near Lawrence or Worcester. They could employ staff for such houses and take in more moms and their families.
