Following is Mavis’ story (not her real name), one of courage and determination in the face of overwhelming obstacles and challenges.
You can hear Mavis tell her story on Family Radio CHRI 99.1 FM, each week day just after station identification at 8 am and 5 pm.
Parts of her story are messy, and always real, as is the wonderful lady who will find a special place in your heart.
Hi, I’m Mavis from the Innercity Arts program with OIM.
Thank you for your interest in my story and your gifts to OIM to help people on the streets just like me.
At Christmas time and all the year round, there are youth on the streets who are in great need.
Please give a gift to Innercity Arts to help this important program continue.
It means so much to me and many other youth in the program to have the support and encouragement that comes from good people like yourself and the folks at OIM.
I hope all your Christmas wishes come true and that your New Year will be the best EVER!
Thanks so much for your prayers and support that allow us to continue to reach out to young people just like Mavis.
