Review for Providence Place, San Antonio, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As the Development Director for Methodist Mission Home for over 3 years I have personally witnessed the impact this ministry has made on hundreds of individuals who were lost and hopeless. Unlike many non-profit agencies, staff and residents are intertwined, accomplishments and successes as well as disappointments are heartfully shared and embraced. It is a humbling honor to work with young people with disabilities who have the courage and determination to take challenging steps towards independence and bith mothers who have the courage to make selfless and responsible decisions towards not only their future but that of their child. I travel all over the state presenting our ministry to churches and organizations and am approached nearly everytime by someone whose life has been touched through an adoption experience with MMH; either they were adopted and now have children of their own, or they adopted and now have grandchildren,...to see the continuation of life and love because of a life affirming decision made by one courageous young teen or young woman years ago is wonderful! One young man with muscular dystrophy who has graduated from our life and vocational skills training program comes to visit once in awhile to say hi and let me know how he is doing. He lives in an apartment now and has a job and is going to UTSA to pursue a career. With little mobility left in his arms and hands and confined to a wheelchair, he rides the bus to work, to school and to visit. Always smiling he shares his accomplishments at school and laughs at some of the obstacles he endures. He teaches me to enjoy the simple things in life. My life has been changed through my experience at MMH and I am a better person because of it.
