Giving Back to Their Community in Any Way They Can

The Allentown Rescue Mission’s “I AM” billboard campaign tells the stories of their graduates, partners, volunteers, and the Clean Team. Each of the billboards tells the story of someone who has been impacted by the Allentown Rescue Mission.

“I AM” is a slogan used by the Allentown Rescue Mission to demonstrate that everyone is a part of the Allentown Rescue Mission. The featured people on the billboards say, “I AM the Allentown Rescue Mission.”

Cohen, Feeley, Altemose, and Rambo, Attorneys at Law, have been giving to the Allentown Rescue Mission for many years. More recently, they have been helping provide urgent necessities brought about by COVID-19. They insist, “It is important to give back to those who are helping the community, to those who are trying to build a better community.”

John Mohr has memories of his family being homeless, which is why he decided to help the Allentown Rescue Mission. He has been volunteering and supporting the Allentown Rescue Mission since he moved back to the Lehigh Valley in 2016. John, along with his wife Jackie, volunteer at various Allentown Rescue Mission events and are highly involved in the design of digital marketing initiatives at the Allentown Rescue Mission.

Raymond came to the Allentown Rescue Mission during a painful chapter in his life. This was his third stay at the Mission, but this time he joined the Transformation Program. In his words, the program brought him “closer to the Lord Jesus Christ” and helped him accept responsibility for his mistakes. Raymond has come a long way, and his work and dedication have paid dividends. A local company recently contracted the Clean Team for facilities work, and Raymond’s contributions turned into a job offer. This company is happy to have Ray as a part of their family, bringing along his excellent work ethic and joyful spirit. Change can happen.
