I am a neighbor of the new illegal halfway house Rev. Jenkins is building o Dorchester Rd. This area is not zoned for shelters, apartments or rooming houses but this so called man of God insists in building one disregarding the law to join the other illegal facility on Commander. Yes he is asking for your money and donations but what real man of God does not follow the law???
Many years ago I found myself young and pregnant on the door steps of this shelter. Rev. Jenkins helped me get the paperwork I needed to get food stamps and start looking for a job. However, because I was pregnant no one wanted to hire me. Rev. Jenkins took me under his wings and had me assist with work that needed to be done at the shelter and church. I didn't feel useless anymore. I helped type letters, assisted with a fundraiser and began to feel like I was needed. As the years have pasted, 19 to be exact, Rev. Jenkins will always have a special place in my heart and in my memories. I don't know where I would be today without him & I Thank God that he lead me to Rev. Jenkins door.
