Helping the needy

takes care, planning


I read with interest about the ministry of Love Thy Neighbor.

I realize it says it is not faith-based, nor can it be by taking grants. But the title comes from the Bible. Some of the points I agree with. Helping teens and children, I am all for.

I have been involved in ministries of help for 25 years. We have so much free food in Sweet Home and, of course, some take advantage. I worked at Manna for four years and have volunteered for SHEM. There is a very fine line between helping and enabling. People need to learn to help themselves.
