Flood Bakersfield Ministries, Inc.
November 24, 2010

When I was first involved in Flood, I remember feeling overwhelmed by the needs of the individuals that we serve. Each week, I began to build relationships with people that had life struggles far beyond anything I could imagine. Yet, week after week, I began to deepen relationship with individuals who were homeless, fighting addiction, and entrenched in generational poverty. I realized that there was a story behind every face that led to the hurts that now defined their present circumstances. Over time, I watched many, many individuals leave addictions and homelessness behind. Many have found work through the resources and support provided by Flood. Many found hope and dignity that they had never known. It is a joy to watch the personal growth of individuals as positive changes occur in their life.

The Great!

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

watching Scott and Ally move from a recovery home to owning a home, working and raising a family!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find resources to be able to reach and serve more individuals.
