Relief for Jessie

Jessie was shot 3x in the back and one in the face 10 years ago. He doesn’t know how it happened or who did it as he cannot remember. He woke up from coma & was paralyzed from the neck down. He has one eye and reading is a bit difficult and blurry. He has one functional hand & paralyzed from the waist down. He was homeless a few months ago. He doesn’t do drugs or alcohol and states the homeless people looked after him. He was able to save his money from panhandling & has finally signed a lease on his own place and couldn’t be more proud of himself. His apartment was completely empty just yesterday and states he had been sleeping in his wheelchair because he didn’t have a bed. With the help of a few friends, he now has a bed and basic furnishings. He is so positive & so proud for pulling himself off the streets. Despite his situation, he is the most optimistic and positive man with an awesome sense of humor.  He is a believer in God and continues to pray daily as he finds comfort in prayer. He states he is still alive and blessings have continued only through God’s help.

Any money donated will go toward a some disability aides and will allow him to not worry about rent/utilities in the next couple of months. This will also put some money in his pockets for food as the holidays are approaching and everyone should have a good meal especially during the holidays.
