Stats for the Ages

According to a recent study, there are over 1.5 million residents of nursing homes ages 65 and older all across the United States.  This number is expected to balloon exponentially over the next ten years as baby boomers continue to age.

These people were not born elderly and infirmed.  They were once caregivers themselves, these are veterans who fought on the beaches of Normandy to insure we have the freedoms we so often take for granted.  They were pastors who ministered to others, doctors who healed others, and they are truck drivers and steel workers, and homemakers who provided made this country great...and the vast majority never receive a single visit.

·  Over 65,000 residents have Alzheimer’s

·  Over 3,000 have AIDS

·  Over 4,500 are in hospice – where death is eminent

·  Over 5,700 are on ventilators

·  Over 27,000 have other special needs

·  54% were diagnosed with dementia or other psychiatric disorders

Are You in R.U.?

Every Thursday evening True Freedom Ministries hosts an addiction recovery program in the heart of the inner-city, called Reformers Unanimous (R.U.).  “The only time you hear of 55th and Francis is on the news,” one attendee said.  But God has us right where he wants us.  Each week between thirty and forty people gather in the gymnasium behind our office to find support, accountability, and the life-changing power of Jesus Christ.

Did I Just See Jesus on the Streets?


But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?” 1 John 3:17 (ESV).

Many in today’s world think only about themselves; we live in the “me” generation. God’s Word calls us to a different standard. We are to be Christ’s hands and feet to a dying and broken world. One of the ways we do this is with our Homeless Ministry.
