It's so much more than a tax break

Posted on December 27, 2017

Right now at Metropolitan Ministries, as many as 80% of our resident moms and children have witnessed, experienced, and are fleeing life-threatening domestic violence. Their lives were in danger before they came here.

Some ran from their homes in the middle of the night with just the shirts on their backs, leaving all their possessions behind.

Having access to our safe shelter and vital programs has literally saved lives. Your giving directly impacts the future of children in particular. They realize for the first time that their lives can be different, and that’s the first step out of poverty—breaking old patterns and the belief that they can’t get out.

Before the New Year, you can help transform the lives of our resident families and children, and an anonymous donor will match your gift.
