    I starkly disagreeing with your “Required attendance at Bible studies and church on Sundays.” It’s not just contradictory to common psychological practice, but it’s also morally reprehensible to use coercion as a tool to offer help, which should be offered regardless of any religious alliance. It also goes against the American ideal of the first amendment to freely choose your religion. Thank you for helping people, but please do it without a dogmatic requirement.

    Do you need donations? I have a couch, twin bed, dresser and book shelf that I'd rather donate than sell or dump. I'd also rather donate to someone who will use it than than profit from it.

    Please contact me so I can apply. I am a single 26 year-old female who is in a toxic, domestic violence relationship and about to be kicked out on the streets. I’d really rather not live in my car.
