Support People In Times Of Need
August 1, 2018
By: Robert Barr, Findlay City Mission
Many people think of the homeless as chronic drunks and bag ladies drifting about but many of the homeless are not chronic homeless. Many find themselves suddenly homeless and need help to recover. There are many people who make barely enough money to handle day to day expenses. When their car breaks down, it may drain money needed for rent or a severe illness or loss of job may cause them to be off work for a prolonged time. As a result, they cannot pay the rent and are evicted. Others may find that the landlord has sold their apartment and the new landlord evicts them so he can remodel the apartment.
Now that Spring is finally here, we continue to serve a population in need in ways that only we can do so. For example, on top of providing nights of lodging to the men, women, and families that reside at City Mission, we also recently opened our doors to accommodate a small group of community guests needing a warm place to sleep through the cold, harsh winter. We served an average of twelve people every night in the month of January in this capacity. These individuals are also welcome to utilize our dining services when needed. Going forward, our plan is to continue to serve as an emergency shelter to these individuals through the Springtime, as well as the rest of the year.
