“I didn’t have any place to go…”

Ron enjoyed all the perks of a six-figure salary until his drug addiction finally got the better of him.  He lost his wife, his business, and his home….and ended up sleeping in a basement.  “I couldn’t function anymore,” he said.  “I didn’t have any place to go.”

ThanRon Hickmanks to you, Knox Area Rescue Ministries was here to care for Ron and hundreds of other hurting men, women, and children in our community.  A nutritious meal at KARM only costs $1.87 to prepare…but we serve more than 23,000 meals in an average month.

Of course, a meal is just the first step toward helping a hurting person like Ron.  You generosity helps to provide comprehensive care and practical programs that empower KARM’s guests to overcome the devastating effects of addition, poverty, and homelessness.

Looking back on his more prosperous days, Ron says, “I don’t miss it now.”  Thanks to you, Ron now has treasure in heaven that he can never lose!
