We want to share a powerful story about the difference you can make in the lives of our clients.
In addition to experiencing the trauma of homelessness, Nina recently lost her hair after being diagnosed with Lupus. MCCH is restoring Nina’s dignity by supporting her in our permanent housing program, but her caring case manager noticed Nina’s wigs were falling apart. Through the generosity of a local congregation, MCCH gave Nina a gift card to purchase a new wig.
Read our case manager’s message of gratitude to learn how one act of kindness can have a powerful impact:
"When I told [Nina] about the gift, she cried. They were tears of joy that were also partially mixed with tears of shame. She carries a lot of guilt for being “needy” and not able to do for herself. I emphasized to her how happy she makes people feel by allowing them to help. I also reminded her that she too gives to others as she has cooked meals for another one of our clients who lives in her building. Ultimately, she was able to accept the gift and off we went to the wig shop."
