Windows of Opportunities
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Too many of our nation's war heroes are coming back from the front-lines only to be left homeless on our streets. It's a heartbreaking thing to see: homeless servicemen and women in shelters, woods and under bridges. Whole Man Ministries has partnered with several contractors and to do their part to help!
It’s quite disheartening to drive throughout the city and to see our former heroes laying beside porches, abandoned buildings and sleeping under bridges.
Next to watching them march almost as uniformly as they once did in our armed forces, to any available soup kitchen, carrying all their possessions in a handheld plastic bag, hoping to make it in line in time to receive a free meal.
