Christ N Us Ministry, 12725 Saeger Road in Grand Bay, has begun Halfway Home, a homeless outreach and family shelter. The mission of the group is "to provide temporary shelter, food and clothing to families who are experiencing homelessness and crisis situations, to restore their dignity and hope, to assist them in obtaining resources available to them, to help them obtain gainful employment and save for a permanent home of their own."
Pictured above, at left, is Lynn Harbison, one of the directors of Halfway Home, and her first two clients, Wanda Turner and Buddy Turner. When the couple arrived in Grand Bay, they found shelter at the facility and now have a home and income.
It might be noted that the shelter does not accept those who are addicted to drugs or alcohol. It is a non-profit organization and all its services are free. However, it does not receive government assistance or grants and subsists solely on donations.
