Dumas Wesley Appeal Seeks to Meet Urgent Needs
“My name is Peggy, I am 49 years old and I am homeless. Please let me re-phrase-- I am no longer homeless thanks to Dumas Wesley’s transitional housing program... My life has been a mess for a long time and there are so many opportunities here for me to be able to help myself become strong and independent. I’m writing this letter to thank you for everything you’ve done to make this possible. You’ll never know how much I appreciate this...My goal is to be one of the success stories. May God richly bless and keep you.”
Peggy represents the thousands of individuals who receive life-altering services from the Dumas Wesley Community Center in Mobile, Alabama. Founded by the United Methodist Women in 1903, their clients are disenfranchised seniors, single mothers, at- risk youths, homeless families, and the working poor. As partners in Christ, we are called to serve those less fortunate than ourselves. These individuals would be hard-pressed to meet their needs without the help of Dumas Wesley and generous supporters like you.
Dumas Wesley’s mission is currently jeopardized by their urgent need for roof repairs. On behalf of the Mobile District and the Alabama West-Florida Conference, we are asking you to please consider making a donation to Dumas Wesley so they may continue to serve under-resourced individuals like Peggy in 2016. We thank you for your prayerful consideration and support of Dumas Wesley’s ministry.
