Toledo Stories: Cherry Street's Mission
Thursday, May 29 at 8:30 p.m.
Rescue. Restore. Release. These words, along with a strong spiritual grounding, comprise the very core of the Cherry Street Mission Ministries.
Even after 65 years, they continue to embrace everyone who has come in need: rescuing them from the streets, restoring their dignity, and releasing them back into the world better equipped than ever. No one is turned away.
Jessie and Bertha Fleck founded Cherry Street Mission Ministries in 1947 to provide free help for people in need. In the years since, Cherry Street has continued to shelter, feed and clothe the homeless and poor, and has grown to provide a net of services that provide education and hope for some of the most fragile members of society.
