I began financially supporting Christ House many years ago after witnessing the healing work of the extremely dedicated team who ministers to the vulnerable homeless men with such love and skill. By that time, I knew personally that Christ House is a healing place for the volunteers as well as for the people they serve.
I was introduced to Christ House because my daughter worked there as a case manager early in her career. She spoke so highly of her colleagues and the mission of Christ House that when my church, Trinity United Methodist in McLean, VA, was looking to get involved with a local mission we chose Christ House.Four of us prepared lunch in our church kitchen on Friday afternoon and brought and served the food for lunch on Saturday. In the beginning, we prepared lunch four times a year, and then six times a year and now we prepare lunch in the Christ House kitchen on the third Saturday of every month!
My hope is that my donations to Christ House will enable more people to be served in this loving and healing place. Providing hope and health for those experiencing homelessness is important because that’s what we’re called to do for one another. My time volunteering at Christ House is a spiritually uplifting, joy-filled connection to this wonderful community.
