Georgetown Ministry Center has checked on and cared for Nathan for nearly three decades. He is always willing to chat during our rounds of street outreach. Our consulting psychiatrists, Dr. Goodwin and Dr. Koshes (top left), Gunther (top right), and general practitioner, Dr. Crosland (bottom left) have trusting relationships with Nathan, which make it possible to provide psychiatric and medical care.
GMC also helps Nathan collect his mail at the Center and manage payments for his storage unit. As you can imagine, pushing a fleet of large carts up and downhill is hard work, so we encouraged him to lighten his load.
When we asked Nathan how GMC has helped him over the years, he said:
You really helped me. You kept my storage together. You are like a blessing. You always check on me after snowstorms. Really pick up my spirits.
Picking up Nathan’s spirits eventually led to connecting him to housing…but that’s next week’s story!
To support Nathan and our other neighbors experiencing homelessness, please give to our $10,000 matching campaign.
