Juanita had five kids to raise in the inner city of San Francisco. The weight and stress, brokenness, and bad influences pushed her towards drinking and occasional drug use. Juanita felt alone in the battle until she met a team member from City Impact who reminder her of the love and promises of God. Juanita began to rise up, and would instead of buy drugs, would go to Bible study or worship. Now Juanita cooks meals for other residents in her building through groceries from the City Impact Rescue Mission.
“It’s just heart wrenching to see people out there now. Christ walked amongst the poor and lonely, and these are the people—we are the who are in need of Jesus Christ’s love— the people that need a lot of prayer.” – Juanita
