My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Flood Bakersfield Ministries, Inc., Bakersfield, CA, USA
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.
