Frequently asked questions
Yet He is not partial to princes, Nor does He regard the rich more than the poor; For they are all the work of His hands. Job 34:19
Is it safe to approach homeless people?
A: Yes. It is safe to approach anyone if you have already evaluated the situation. Prudence is always good in any situation and using wisdom in applying God's way.
Do you and your team look for the homeless?
A: Yes. We go out every day and look for people that are homeless. Some of them we know already and we know where we can find them within the area.
Why help people and not let them help themselves?
A: God loves the homeless. They are people just like us. Anyone could be homeless from one day to the next. We should do good when we are prompted to do so by our spirit. This pleases God.
Are you really helping those who have addictions by giving?
A: Yes. People love to be acknowledged and loved. For these people, it usually takes time to develop trust in others. Life on the streets is tough and addictions are a way of coping with life for many homeless individuals. We do not go to them attempting to bring change. Rather, to give them love, self- esteem, and to find dignity in valuing themselves. The change comes with time through a process.
Do they take advantage of the kind services that the ministry offers?
A: No. But we take chances every day. In so many ways and with so many things, why not continue to do the right thing, without worries but just be obedient and continue to serve the homeless.
Do you see changes in those you serve?
A: Changes do happen and we are very blessed to be a part of the lives that are restored. But as is in everything, it takes time to develop relationships. Some people have lost trust in everything and some never trusted anyone.
Are they grateful for all that you do for them?
A: We have been serving the homeless for several years and I have never have experienced a negative or rude comment regarding our presence and involvement in their lives. They consider us "family."
What are Nurses for Christ's goals?
A: Our goal is to reach more homeless with our services, by giving and sharing the love of God. Many of the homeless people have never experienced the love and the warmth of having a family. Nor have they ever had someone care for them, day after day, without asking for anything in return.
Does Nurses for Christ have success stories?
A: Yes. Over the years, many lives have been changed. While some are just beginning, others have already completed their rehabilitation and are staying sober. Some have also gone back to reconcile with their family and many others.
