KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A once homeless family is back on their feet after spending nearly three months at City Union Mission. Anthony and Sharron Andrades said the shelter took their family of six in during a time they needed it the most.
“My ego was bruised, you know, having to bring my wife and my children into a shelter not knowing what to expect,” Anthony Andrades told FOX 4.
The couple said the budget and finance classes offered at City Union Mission helped them get back on their feet. Now, they rent a home and Anthony has a full time job. Sharron Andrades wrote a fantasy novel, called Aborinth that will be published in the coming months.
“You’ve got to have faith, you’ve got to have the desire to do it,” Anthony said.
The family said the shelter gave them the tools they needed to turn their life around.
