"They got me food and clothes and back on my feet.I got behind on my bills when I had to go to the hospital. Then I lost my job because I had to take time off. The people at Sharing God's Love helped me feed my family and keep the lights on while I got my life back in order. They were compassionate, prayed with me, and never made me feel bad about needing help."
