It is unfortunate there have been rash judgments and assumptions expressed about The Bread of Life Mission without investigation.
As a 5th year volunteer during the winter season, I can attest that the B.O.L.M. has saved countless people from despair and homelessness. A variety of life stories pass through here from battered women, (some with children), seniors, people in recovery and some that have just 'slipped thru the cracks' and overlooked by society.
Bread of Life Mission provides a safe haven for individuals trying to regain their lives by becoming independent and productive members of society. The goal is not to be judgmental, but to provide shelter, food and build self esteem.
There have been many success stories from former residents at the B.O.L.M. that have gone on to be medical assistants, construction workers and business owners. Former successful residents have returned to offer assistance and thank Miss Judy for saving them from despair.
Remember, GOD loves each and every one of us regardless of our past, and helps guide us to a bountiful future.
this is the best place to be I do not know when the last time you were hear but come and see the progess for your self if you want thing to change come and donate they do not get any funding besides the people that live there. this place saved my life
I was very disappointed in the conditions of this "shelter". I witnessed the outside kitchen, with outside food storage, and flies EVERYWHERE. There are piles of garbage all over the property. There is no hot water or air conditioning in the dorms.
This is not a shelter! This is a homeless campground! Who runs this place? And, where is the health department? This is not a legitimate organization.
Unsafe, Unsanitary, VERY Miserable place to go. This used to be a very nice place but now the organization running it steals the food, work you hard as slaves doing tasks that could be accomplished using equipment the company has, but prefers to see you work any way. After visiting a few of my friends that got evicted from their apartments I wound up awestruck at what lay before me here. Let me list what you will face:
Pros: wifi and cable.
No cable in girls dorm.
No visits from Fiances. Its prohibited.
Mandatory Bible study.
Cockroaches the size of my phone.
Rats as big as cats.
Standing water everywhere causing huge swarms of mosquitos.
Recycling containers placed near areas of gathering, causing flies at every meal.
The kitchen is outside in a run down shack with a shaky floor and water damage everywhere.
No AC in any Dorm
You have to work the phones and fill out paperwork for newcomers, things that only staff should do.
Ridiculous amounts of labor. Expect 14 - 18 hours of it PER DAY.
Theft. and lots of it.
Extremely dirty bathrooms, Black Mold on the curtains, floor laminated with towels.
Owner witnessed taking donated food AWAY from mission and bringing back absolute CRAP cooking.
Rumored that a 37,000 dollar donation was made to this place however, NONE of it appeared to be used to maintain the mission.
Hope you are an early bird because you are REQUIRED to be awake at 6 am.
Located next to a school playground, lots of screaming will be heard.
Dorms have broken windows.
Lots of bugs here! had to take my friend to the hospital after A large area of her arm was covered in a rash.
Tap water runs black and smells.
And so much much more.
My friends are moving to a different site.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
YOU HAVE A HIGHER LIFE EXPECTANCY SLEEPING IN A MARSH.
Will add photos soon.
