  1. I have not stayed, but I have been there for a free lunch. The food was hot and cooked well including the seasons and I will say that I had enough on one plate for there not to be a need for seconds. Excellent staff !

    I have spoken with a few people on the phone years ago and got very good spiritual support when I was down. I'm still financially broke, but the up lift they brought to me to keep trying was so helpful. I have never stopped praying for this shelter ever since. You know God do provide, it may not always be money, but he provide power in prayer which is most powerful. Bless bless bless!
