Stories

 
Our speakers today were David Owan and Nancy Huttell representing Elevations, a non-profit serving Spokane County. They are a children’s therapy resource foundation, helping children with special needs reach their full potential by providing access to the resources and support they need to improve their overall quality of life.
 
This organization was established by committed medical professionals, families and community members who see too many children with physical and mental challenges who could be helped by therapy – but who have limited or no resources to meet the cost. Elevations helps financially with insurance deductibles, co-pays, therapy and equipment. They look at the needs of the child not the finances of the family.
 
 
 
Our speakers this week were Marty and Julie McKinney from Truth Ministries. This is a single men’s shelter on Sprague and a vital resource for Spokane. Dan Droz called it a YES program, because every time he’s referred a client, they have said yes, bring him in. Marty said he started serving the local homeless by serving sandwiches on the street at night. The facility holds 50 men per night but on cold nights, they cram in 85 men. He says that there is a database of 10,000 transients that move through our city on a circuit which includes Montana.
