Hope Rescue Mission, a place where you are loved and you learn to love yourself
Norman Brown came to Berks County 14 years ago. He used to drive by the Hope Rescue Mission and think he would never need a place like that. But then he lost everything just like that and found himself at the door of the Hope Rescue Mission.
Norman talks about the people he met that lifted him up and believed in him, Pastor Steve, Janet and Frank. He says the love you and support you emotionally. They show you how to love yourself again. Norman found refuge at Hope Rescue Mission for about 4 months and he also found hope and a job.
He was encouraged daily to never give up! Today he is working third shift full time, he is back together with his wife, has an apartment and a car. Every morning he goes to Hope Rescue Mission to serve breakfast. He says There are not bad guys at Hope Rescue Mission, just guys who are down on their luck. He asks for your sponsorship. It shows the men someone believes in them. He is so grateful someone believed in him that he is committed to be there everyday to give back and believe in the guys that are there.
