The Vision Of A Grateful Mind At A Glance
In our society today, our impoverished and homeless do not portray the stereotypical look of being dirty, scrungy and illiterate. Today, our
struggling society encompasses the well educated, top tier executives, and the working poor; those that live paycheck to paycheck and many who are only a paycheck a way from being homeless
With the economic downturns, lost jobs and wages; foreclosed homes and evictions; people are faced with difficult decisions each day such as: “Do I pay this electric bill or do I buy food”…”Do I buy food or get my medicine”? Every day in someone’s life in some part of the country, (possibly right next door to you), someone is having to make these difficult life choices.
When individuals and families are face with unforeseen circumstances, it does not mean that they are lazy, or that they don’t care. In most cases it is the complete opposite; they would constantly work if they had not lost their job and they do care about their family’s needs being met that is why they are seeking help.
In the year 2000 is when the vision of A Grateful Mind International was birthed...out of hurt, despair and the need to not be demeaned when
asking for help. After years and years of serving others from the heart in children’s homes; elderly care; soup kitchens, shelters and even the homeless on the street, the quiet continual preparation
for A Grateful Mind was thought to be a gift of service & resources to an existing organization. Hence, yielding many failed attempts to pass the buck, A Grateful Mind International was offically
incorporated & founded in 2011 to answer a divine call to formally connect with the many efforts to help those in need; offer encouragement, hope and resources to create a positive change in the
lives of those who seek assistance,by helping them see that there are better days beyond their current situation and that God will provide.
