Poverty lives here?
Poverty. The term conjures up certain images in our minds. A home in disrepair; a child in tattered clothing, a person begging for money on the side of the street. We think of third world poverty, rural poverty or urban poverty.
Most people, however, don’t expect to find poverty in suburbia. Loss of a job, divorce, mounting medical bills, underemployment – things that happen in life, and when they do, can devastate a once comfortable home and family. Meet Suburban Poverty.
Serving as a Market Host
Kaleb here! I have been involved with SECORCares since 2018. SECOR is based in Parker, CO and serves the local community primarily through a grocery store/food market in the building you see below. My role in volunteering throughout the month has been as a “Market Host” walking customers through the market and getting to know them better, helping to meet their food needs and learn more about them. I’ve loved the people I’ve met through working here and have been refreshed through the experience of partnering with SECOR both with time and dollars.
The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. – Proverbs 11:25
