John was sleeping under the Hamilton Street bridge within 100 feet of Allentown Rescue Mission. A staff member from the Emergency Shelter, (formerly known as Gateway), approached him and asked John if he would rather come inside. He agreed to the offer, stayed in Gateway for a short time, and then joined the Christian Living Program of the Allentown Rescue Mission. He grew accustomed to the program and embraced the help offered by the Allentown Rescue Mission. John is now cleaning our city’s streets, and he is enjoying it. He likes having something to do. He likes making a contribution.
