Julie needed assistance with rent and utilities because she recently had brain surgery and was unable to work. She applied for unemployment, but had not received it yet. Julie’s son, Aaron, was working and going to college. He was trying to help with the bills as much as he could. The Cleveland Foundation Grant, New Life Church, and Love INC partnered together to pay one month of Julie’s rent and keep her electric connected. One of our volunteers called to check in and prayed with her as she accepted Jesus into her life. Julie sent the following thank you message: “Everyone at Love INC. I just want to say thank you so much for what you have done for me and what you continue to do for others. You are a true blessing. God Bless.”
