Transforming Lives

“I thank you all for everything,” he says of the food, shelter and support he’s received from Mel Trotter and its family of donors. He adds that "he will continue to be patient, stay positive and put God first and make the most of the opportunity he’s received.“


Damien* arrived in Grand Rapids by bus from Memphis, Tennessee, with no one and no place to welcome him. At the station, a local experiencing homelessness told Damien about Mel Trotter Ministries. Damien needed a nourishing meal and a safe night of rest and received these essentials and much more as he began to share his story with Mel Trotter staff.
