I was first connected with City Gospel Mission in November of 2009 when I volunteered with the annual Thanksgiving Meal at the Duke Energy Center. In early 2010 I began mentoring a young woman in the women’s recovery program, Having the Courage to Change (HTCTC). I have also given of my time assisting the Intake Coordinator for the ministry with administrative tasks. I look forward to the time I spend at HTCTC each week. This organization is doing an incredible job of showing God's love in practical ways to hurting people. In all the involvement I've had with other non profits, the holistic approach of the women's recovery program is by far the best I've seen. The women in the recovery program have a deep desire for a mentor, but there is a shortage of Christian women willing to give of them selves in this way. I would encourage anyone who is interested in mentoring a man or woman from one of City Gospel Missions recovery programs to give it a try. It is a very rewarding experience and the participants in the programs appreciate it so much. City Gospel Mission provides Understanding Poverty training for new volunteers that is outstanding as well. I learned so much from this training and was emotionally moved by the information presented that day. I plan to continue my involvement with City Gospel Mission for a long time.

I've seen the life change that happens there first hand.
