This strong and kind young couple (Jesus & Kristen) overcame addiction and got stable employment, they were patiently taking all the right steps to stabilize their family. Then Kristen and Jesus met our executive director Kristina (in the first photo with the family) at a perfect time as they were ready to receive their miracle.
Their family of 6 needed stable housing; they've been staying in their car, hotels and couch surfing. Even with two jobs, their daily expenses with four children ate up all their income: hotel stays, ready-to-eat foods, gas, kids expenses.... they kept finding themselves in a hole. (This is unfortunately a sad reality of many for our employed unhoused clients.)
But Jesus and Kristen kept their hope and were diligently continuing to make healthy and smart decisions.
In partnership with Tri-Valley Seek&Save and Cornerstone we were able to get them into a great home they can sustain and rebuild their lives in, and they could not be happier!!
As we furnished their place, the kids were especially blessed by two bunk beds - they were so excited and grateful that they all finally got their own beds and rooms to sleep in!
This family has recently been baptized and is now volunteering and serving our community. Your generosity made this miracle possible - it has impacted 6 lives and generations to come. THANK YOU!
MIRACLE OF HOUSING! Tom is a 66 year old man who was met with challenging circumstances after losing his job due to Covid and experiencing serious health issues. He decided to volunteer at one of our outreaches with his daughter-in-law, and as we got to know him we realized that Tom was in need of a miracle.
His temporary housing was coming to an end and his income was running out. Tom was facing homelessness.
Our case manager Eric (in photo with Tom) was able to minister to Tom in his faith, walk alongside him, strengthen him, provide transportation and housing, and help find work opportunities. This created a perfect bridge for Tom! He landed a great job within his expertise, now has a stable income and his own home! In addition his health improved greatly. Tom says that he is our walking miracle testimony!
He is incredibly grateful and has renewed hope, and he is seeing an amazing growth in his walk with the Lord.
Tom is now a donor and a faithful volunteer at Monthly Miracles!! He is the perfect example of the full circle of our mission which you can see in our logo: the $1 bills are going into a circle, which signifies the importance of paying it forward. We love to encourage and engage our clients to become donors and help bless someone else who is in need of a miracle.

Kelly has overcome many obstacles in her life: health issues, addiction, family troubles and most recently homelessness! In the past few years Kelly has stabilized her income and started a promising career, and is now fully taking care of her high school aged son.
Having an unstable housing situation, living in a motel for a long time, sharing a room with her teenage son and burning through all their income had become increasingly difficult.
We were so happy to be there for Kelly in this latest and crucial step for her family: getting a home of their own! We also helped them furnish their place.
Thanks to our program and your generosity, Kelly has become another one of our miracle stories that is now out of the ditch of homelessness and is able to rebuild her family's life!
Lana* was alone and scared, and she reached out to us online. We got to help Lana* out of a domestic violence situation, and assisted in rehabilitating her as we found housing and moved her into her own safe place to live.
Within just a few days we were able to provide her with the support, ministry and financial aid she needed.
She is surrounded by our great volunteers who meet with her on a regular basis, help her stay connected to a local church, making sure she gets counseling and everything else she needs to rebuild her life.
She is working toward taking care of her children again, who were not safe in the violent home they lived in previously. Lana* is on such a precious journey of restoration and we are very blessed to walk alongside her as we witness these beautiful miracles taking place in her life!
In the first photo Lana* is in her baby's room which is fully equipped and safe for her son. In the second photo Lana* is with our Bible ministry leader Corinne and executive director Kristina.
