Mother Emanuel AME in Charleston, refusing to bend to terrorism, not willing to give up a single day to hate and once again in her history of service, is today being the symbol of hope and forgiveness by holding Sunday services for all people. We honor the dedication and forbearance of our brothers and sisters who with eyes wide open follow God, though against the odds of man, share in the matchless grip of His favor! Dan Rogers

A New York Times editorial ( recently ranked Toledo the 4th most distressed city in the nation. One in five Toledo residents still live at or below the poverty line. Forty-seven percent of adults either aren’t working or have full- or part-time jobs that don’t pay a livable wage. Since Cherry Street’s doors remain open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, they shoulder the burden every waking—and non-waking—hour. “The demand for emergency food, shelter and compassionate care haven’t gone away,” Rogers says. “These men, women and children who are struggling to survive aren’t always visible. It can be easy to forget to help. But the reality is a dramatic need for anyone in the community with the means to give what they can.” Rogers tells it like it is. But his heart is focused on lifting people on the fringes of society onto a stable, secure and successful path forward. “We don’t use labels at Cherry Street,” Rogers adds. “These are real people with real families and real skills to share with the community. But for a variety of reasons, and many that would surprise you, they need someone to care and invest in who they are. And our entire community will be the better for it.” Each year, Cherry Street undergoes voluntary audits, carefully examining how to best utilize all of their resources to provide the highest quality of service for guests. They run a tight ship. But even the most efficient service organizations can spring a leak when the water gushing in is too great. Every day as people leave the mission to return home, our revolving door continues to turn with new people at our door step.

A press conference was held on the first floor of One Government Center to announce the awarding of a $1 million dollar grant from the state of Ohio to construct a modern kitchen which will serve both organizations, 24 hours per day, as FLCC seeks to feed more hungry children, and Cherry Street Mission feeds additional adults. Speaking at the announcement was FLCC Board Chair Carty Finkbeiner and CEO Patrick Howard, and Cherry Street Mission President and CEO Dan Rogers, State Senators Randy Gardner and Edna Brown, Mayor Paul Hicks-Hudson and County Commissioners Peter Gerken and Tina Skeldon-Wozniak. The site of the newly constructed kitchen will be The Center for Life Revitalization (formerly Macomber).
