Bobby's Story

When you face an obstacle or hurdle that stands in the way of your destiny, you can either see them as an excuse, or a tool to learn and rise above. Bobby is someone who is well familiar with both. Bobby became addicted to meth in his 20's, later began hearing voices after using speed amphetamine, contracted HIV after using a needle that was tampered with, and was diagnosed with ataxia, a crippling disease. 

Bobby has lived with limitations and the excuses became so common to him:

"...But I hear the voices...." 

"...I just don't want to be a burden to anyone...."

It was when Bobby stopped at the Rescue Mission he first heard the gospel. I thought it was "cool" as many other attributes of a God that would chase after him. 

Bobby's wonder of who God is has grown tremendously after being a vital member within a community that loves him and surrounds him with support. 

What formerly shrouded Bobby's mind with doubt, accusations and fear has now turned into laughter, joy and a wonder of God.  

No longer can you hear a resounding series of excuses but laughs and an exclaiming, "praise Jesus!" 

Thank you to all the volunteers, supporters and donors that drive this ministry and intervene on behalf of someone like Bobby!

"Jesus, was in my heart as well, and he knows my heart. That's why I am slowly but surely figuring out my destiny in life." says Bobby. "I'm more clear minded now, I'm not out of control, I'm not making a mess anymore, and I appreciate that, the LORD's gift, he's given me." 

Bobby is one of the many that have been served through Adopt a Building and our Rescue Mission

Felicia's Story – You Can Make an Impact

Felicia believed she wouldn't live past her young age through a chronic history of abuse, victimization, and injustice. By a miracle she was able to get out, but with the help someone who intervened. Someone who visited her, someone who invited her in, someone who cared for her, someone who brought her home.

City Impact is an idea that one man or woman can make a difference. Through City Impact's multiple departments, a holistic approach is taken to revitalize a community and change a life.
