GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)- As of January 2019, over 500,000 people have experienced homelessness in America. Furthermore, researchers have concluded that about 9,000 of these individuals resided in Michigan and lived in poverty.
Whether or not you’re currently facing extreme adversity, Mel Trotter Ministries wants to remind you that we’re all the same! Individuals dealing with social and economic hardships are just like the individuals who aren’t.
