“I was hungry, somebody told me about this place, and I came,” says Leroy, 40-year-old soup kitchen guest. “I found that they offer all these wonderful services.”

Leroy has been coming here for the past 5 years and has used many of our services. “Holy Apostles has helped me out a lot,” Leroy says, smiling. “They helped me with socks, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, and lotion. They even helped me to get an ID. I just used a haircut voucher a couple days ago. And they show movies, which is a great way to keep out of the cold.”

Knowing we’re here gives him a sense of security. “Everyone at Holy Apostles makes sure I get everything I need; they really go above and beyond. They make sure my needs are met even if it comes out of their own pockets,” Leroy shares, gratefully. “Holy Apostles really is a great place!”

But what it really comes down to for Leroy is the people – he loves the volunteers and other guests.

“Everyone is so warm, friendly and nice – that’s what keeps me coming back. They make me feel like I belong to a part of something.”
