Review for Lazarus Ministries at Grand Avenue Temple, Kansas City, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Lazarus Ministries (LM) provides meals, shelter, clothing, medical services, and a loving spirit to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the homeless of Kansas City. Many of those who seek support from LM are people whose families have given up on them and have no other place to turn. What I've learned from working with those who are served by LM is that life in our society is complicated and not everyone is equipped with the skills to maintain a permanent home, job, car, red tape, insurance, etc. Some lack the ability because of mental illness and others were just born that way. Nevertheless, LM loves them just as God does.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

Definitely

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I've made many friends with the sojourners served by LM.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I feel needed . I also am reminded that each and every one of us are close to someone who is just 1 tragedy away from being homeless themselves.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010

Role:  Volunteer & I have served meals at the Lazarus Table; I also assist with a Bible Study attended by sojourners who are served by Lazarus Ministries.
