Hi! God is awesome! Grace Ministries of Helping Hands has most definitely made a major impact on my life. The women of this organization go far and beyond to help women who were once lost in the grip of addiction. What I truly admire the most is how they connect the women they help with Spiritual Advisors. Thanks Grace Ministries for all the support you give me! This organization is a blessing to many.
Grace Ministries is the best organization that helped me turn my life around and made me the person I am today. Years ago when I was all messed up, Grace Ministries stepped in and showed me more love than I could have imagined. They told me how much God loved me and that they will be by my side every step of the way. Till this day, their word remains the same. I've started at the bottom with them and I'm rising up to the top. Everytime I felt like giving up, Grace showed their helping hand. It wasn't easy giving up a lifestyle that I thought I could get use too, but Grace words always remind me of who I am now, then what I was back then. I love each and everyone of Grace Ministries Helping Hands. May God bless them to keep this organization going. Their word alone can change many lives and I'm a living witness.
Grace ministry was sent truely from God into my life to rescue me. I was a prostitute and crack addict, homeless on Philips Highway. After they have met me, I am clean off drugs and a retail manager for Rethreaded. They even got me the connection to work at the nonprofit! They loved me through every relapse unconditionally and are still my best support. Kathleen and Jan are like Mamas to me. I love them and still to this day praise Jesus for sending them to me.
This wonderful group reached out to my daughter when she was at her lowest point in a female prison. They wrote letters to her and helped her with a bus ticket upon her release and with housing/job assistance once she arrived into town. Today my daughter is a productive member of the community, working in a law office, playing sports such as softball and kickball in her spare time. Most importantly Grace Ministry helped my husband and I as much as our daughter by lifting her up and helping her to mature and become the beautiful person that we thought we had lost.
I was in jail so worried I would be back on the streets again homeless when I got put. They picked me up from jail let me go to church with them and then took me to a safe structured environment where they paid my rent for 3 months.. I'm just one of the very many lost girls they do this for !!! True women of God who devote there entire lives to helping others.
I have struggled with addiction for years...when I was ready to change Grace was there for me. Someone wrote me the whole time I was incarcerated and when I got our they helped me get clothes and other things I needed to start working. Now I still have my job, I'm clean and sober and I know that if I need anything their hand will be there.
I was on the streets of Jacksonville feeling very hopeless. I was a slave to heroin and cocaine, shooting up several times a day, selling my soul for it. Kathleen McDaniel and others continuously reached out over the months giving a goody bag, prayer and offering a better life. The third time we met just seeing this Godly woman convicted my spirit. I decided to get their help. She drove me to and picked me up from detox. They paid my way in a sober living house, even got me an interview that landed me a job within two weeks. Kathleen visits me weekly and always brings me nice clothes and lifts my spirits, giving me confidence to get another part time job to be self sufficient. Her story also gave me the courage to follow through with celebrating my first full month in sobriety!! She even picked out a very hands on sponsor who picks me up for church!! Grace Ministry changed my life!!
