A handful of your friends and neighbors got a close up look at the many services that Metro Ministries provides to our city's less fortunate population.
About a dozen members of the Nueces County Child Advocacy Center got a behind-the-scenes tour of Metro Ministries Tuesday, and all the work they do for our homeless community. The organization is open for tours two days a week, and invites groups and community leaders to stop by to see how they provide help.
"By coming and going through the tour, they're one hour, they're fast and efficient, people can connect to the things that we're doing here, and we hope that creates advocacy and awareness," said Patty Clark, CEO and Executive Director of Metro Ministries. "And you know, a little work on their part to go back and tell their friends and neighbors, 'You have to see this place.'"
Currently, Metro Ministries serves hundreds of the city's homeless and working poor, and is the home for the Loaves & Fishes Free Cafeteria and the Rainbow House for Women and Children.
