#GivingTuesday Empty Plate Stories: Meet Anaya

Posted on November 24, 2017

Anaya and her mom, Terri, lived every day in fear. Her father was an abusive husband to Terri, so they were forced live on the streets, literally running for their lives.

"I was scared for me and my little girl. We had nowhere to go that was safe!" Anaya's mom said.

Metropolitan Ministries welcomed Terri and Anaya with open arms and provided them with meals and shelter. Anaya's mom is now a supervisor at Metropolitan Ministries, and she is now living a happier life in a safe environment. 

"Me and my baby girl, Anaya, owe you our lives. Thank you."

Your gift on #GivingTuesday can make twice the impact it did in Anaya's life thanks to a MATCH from another generous donor – who will double your gift.

It is thanks to you that we can fill Anaya's empty plate with #Hope.
