"Genesis Joy House has been an amazing Bright Light in some of the darkest, loneliness moments in my life. When I think of Genesis, the one word that comes to mind is "dignity" they are NOT a hand out, they're a "Hand Up". When life's tragedy hit my family, I didn't even know how to ask for help. I had assumed those closest to us would be the ones to help us, sadly enough the only thing people said to us was, "we'll pray for you". While emotionally that may have offered some comfort, it did not come even close to reaching our needs. In daily living we do not need for nothing, but when this life crisis came so fast and was so incredibly overwhelming my family was stunned. It was so overwhelming I literally felt like I was going to have a breakdown. This is when the team at Genesis, led by the amazing woman of God, Margaret Queen-Flower, calmed me down enough to get me to tell them exactly what my needs were. It took me a couple of days to respond to Mrs. Flowers because I could not believe someone was going to help. Then the calls started to come' there were real people, literally going to give me the things I needed from diapers, to baby beds, clothes, toys, food, toiletries and so so much more. All while preserving my dignity about needing help. We are a simple family, going about our daily lives, and we needed help. Genesis was there to pick us up. THANK YOU Genesis from the bottom of our hearts."
