Vincent learned what hunger was like when he was only 10 years old. His father passed away, and his family struggled in the midst of that huge loss.
“We had no food in the house,” he remembers. “There were spider webs and cobwebs on the dishes. I ate toothpaste just to have something in my stomach.”
At Cityteam, Vincent has found relief from those familiar hunger pangs with delicious, hot meals. Just imagine the joy and relief he felt receiving a plate overflowing with ham, mashed potatoes, vegetables, and fresh fruit after experiencing such extreme hunger.Read More Stories
Your involvement is what makes it possible to change lives, families, and communities. Every program at Cityteam, from a hot meal to addiction recovery, is only possible because of support from individuals, companies, churches, and schools who care about helping others. You don’t have to be a superhero to make a difference. Here are some ways YOU can get involved.
Our Food Services program meets the needs of families by providing a box of food to help those struggling with hunger.
We work with parents to ensure that their children maintain a healthy environment.
Our shelter provides a safe place for those struggling with homelessness to sleep.
We’re extraordinarily grateful to everyone that helps us share God’s love to the homeless and those suffering from poverty here in the Greater Delaware Valley.
You may never meet the people we serve but let me tell you how thankful they are for a hot meal, a big food box, a box of diapers, a night of shelter, or someone to talk to. They have the chance to receive the hope that only God can provide and these moments can inspire them to change their lives.
