We met George waiting in line for a meal and a room at Cityteam. He was in a wheelchair. His legs had been amputated due to diabetes. After suffering an infection, he ended up in the hospital. He was released homeless and in a lot of pain.
“I don’t have any friends or family to go to,” he said.
Getting around is difficult for George. He carries all his worldly possessions in his lap and his wheelchair doesn’t have electric power.
He’s so thankful for Cityteam. We’ve become the place that keeps him safe, where he can begin to put his life back together. We’re the only place George says he knows that people care about him.
Many of our clients are disabled, elderly or struggling with mental illness. They would be completely alone without Cityteam, but because of your generosity, they are finding the hope to rebuild their lives and the help they need to get back on their feet.
