Sick and Tired!

On Monday, January 2nd, the Ventura County Star reports on the reality that ailing homeless – those being released from hospitals, clinics and urgent care have few places to turn for help. In Ventura, the Rescue Mission is about their only option. Historically, the Mission has taken in those being treated for broken limbs, heart, liver, kidney and psychiatric ailments.

The life of an ailing homeless person is consumed with trying to recover from a severe illness while making the rounds to missions and soup kitchens to maintain nourishment and hydration. In most cases, this is almost and impossible task.

One individual has moved to sunny So Cal’s Ventura County some weeks ago after having slept outside in a Minnesota snow storm. His toes were amputated because of frost burn and now he finds it difficult to walk due to continuous problems with his feet.
The next StreetReach days helping the homeless living on our very own American streets are coming the last weekend of January. Please partner with us to sponsor water ($20), van insurance ($50), Bibles ($75), and there is an urgent need for van upkeep - $100.
