NLV - Gloria's Angelitos
Help us, myself and all of our Angels to end homelessness in Battle Creek & surrounding areas by helping us fund this page to help our homeless community in the streets to bring them back to their families, find good paying jobs, assist them into going into rehab, go back to school, temporary housing along with long term housing.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, the start of the Angels mission to help fight in an effort to embrace those lost souls and bring them back in to society.
I have personally seen all types of homelessness all over Michigan since I began this mission back in November 2013! I along with our volunteers, donors and sponsors have been able to make a difference in the lives of so many since November to present. I would like to continue this fight but I need all of the support I can obtain from my family, friends, co-workers, business partners, community.
"You are never so lost that your angels can not find you!"
