Summer of Hope
Your gift of $1.92 provides a meal and care for someone like Paris. She's 10-years-old and knows what hunger feels like.
"We couldn't eat breakfast usually, or sometimes we didn't even eat lunch. One of the things that they usually have here (at the Mission) is the chicken noodle soup. I'm in in love with the chicken noodle soup," says Paris.
"I would try not to let the kids notice. I'd say I wasn't hungry I'd eat a couple crackers and make sure they had something to eat," she says.
“It’s really amazing to see that journey from a woman having no confidence and being alone in the world to getting to be a part of community, healed, back to work, school, and finding purpose again."
