We are all God’s Children

I am a lifelong resident of Jefferson County.  Prior to my employment at JCCM, I was unaware of how many members of our community are homeless.  While I saw someone from time to time standing at a busy intersection holding a sign asking for some sort of help, I had no idea many others in […]
