"KCM has been a lifeline for me during a challenging period in my life."

Giving Tuesday 2023 Katy Christian MinistriesI cannot express enough how much Katy Christian Ministries has been a lifeline for me during a challenging period in my life. Their unwavering support and genuine compassion have made a world of difference, and I will forever be grateful for their assistance.

In my time of need, Katy Christian Ministries went above and beyond to help me in ways that exceeded my expectations. One person who truly stood out during my interaction with them was my case manager. She was not only kind and empathetic but also incredibly resourceful in finding solutions to my pressing issues.

When I found myself struggling to make ends meet and faced the daunting prospect of having my electricity cut off, she stepped in with grace and efficiency. She helped me navigate the process of paying my electric bill, ensuring that I could keep the lights on in my home and maintain a sense of stability in my life.

However, my challenges didn’t end there, as I soon faced the threat of eviction due to financial difficulties. Despite Katy Christian Ministries being temporarily out of resources for rent assistance, my case manager went the extra mile by reaching out to me again. She didn’t just leave me hanging but took it upon herself to refer me to another organization that could provide the assistance I needed. This gesture of going out of her way to help me find the support I required was amazing.

The kindness and dedication I experienced from Katy Christian Ministries have left a mark on my heart. Their commitment to helping those in need is a shining example of the positive impact a caring community organization can have on people’s lives. Thanks to their assistance, I was able to navigate through a difficult time, and I am now on a path towards stability and self-sufficiency.

I wholeheartedly endorse Katy Christian Ministries for their work and the incredible individuals like my case manager who make it all possible. They are a beacon of hope for those in need, and I am forever grateful for their support during my time of need.

“KCM allowed us to weather the storm with hope and gratitude.”

"KCM allowed us to weather the storm with hope and gratitude."

I cannot express enough how grateful I am for the support and assistance provided by Katy Christian Ministries during one of the most challenging times in my life. My family was facing an overwhelming situation, and we were unsure of where to turn. My husband had lost his job, leaving us without health insurance and struggling to make ends meet for our family of five, including our three children aged nine, six, and two.

Our youngest son, who has significant medical needs, required urgent care, and without health insurance, we were at a loss. The burden of his care fell on me as my husband searched tirelessly for new employment. In the midst of all this, we fell behind on our rent, with no way to catch up.

Thankfully, we discovered Katy Christian Ministries. From the moment we reached out, we were met with kindness and compassion. The staff understood the urgency of our situation and guided us through the process of applying for assistance. With their support, we were approved for Medicaid and SNAP benefits, which provided a lifeline for our family’s healthcare and nutritional needs.

Katy Christian Ministries not only helped us navigate the complexities of government assistance programs, but they also went above and beyond by providing one month of rent assistance and access to their food pantry. This gesture relieved an enormous financial burden and allowed us to focus on our son’s medical care and well-being.

Thanks to the unwavering support of Katy Christian Ministries, we were able to take our son to the doctor, ensuring he received the crucial medical attention he needed. The SNAP benefits eased our worries about putting food on the table, and the rent assistance provided a sense of stability during a tumultuous time.

As a family, we will be forever grateful for the caring and compassionate service that Katy Christian Ministries provided us. They truly made a positive impact on our lives and allowed us to weather the storm with hope and gratitude. This organization is a beacon of light for families in need, and we are proud to share our story as a testament to their invaluable work.

I would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Katy Christian Ministries’ Social Services for the incredible help and support they’ve provided us with for the past two years. As a household living on a fixed income and dealing with disabilities, the summer seasons proved to be particularly challenging, as our electricity bills soared unexpectedly, reaching over $500. It was during these trying times that KCM came into our lives, and we can’t thank them enough.

We first learned about Katy Christian Ministries through a referral from 211 Texas, and from the very beginning, their kindness, compassion, and unwavering support have made a profound impact on our lives. Their dedicated efforts not only prevented us from facing disconnection due to unpaid bills, but they also went the extra mile to ensure that our basic needs were met. Through their assistance, we were able to secure essential resources such as food, which alleviated a significant burden from our shoulders.

What truly stands out about Katy Christian Ministries is the exceptional staff who work tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of individuals and families like ours. Their warm and friendly demeanor, combined with their genuine care for our well-being, have truly touched our hearts. They didn’t just provide financial help; they offered a sense of community and understanding that is immeasurable.

A Survivor’s Story

Father and daughter

“If it wasn’t for KCM, I’d be dead.”

If it wasn’t for KCM, I’d be dead. I loved my partner with everything in me, but many things were very wrong. I believed it was my fault and I continued to give and give hoping it would get better. It didn’t. It got worse.  And during COVID, it got way worse.

Slapping me escalated to punching. Hard hits became pummeling blows that would cause me to fall and my head to hit furniture, door frames, and the floor. I bled from cuts on my neck and shards of broken dishes that pierced my skin. I gasped for breath weeping as I was choked or kicked. I stared down the barrel of a loaded gun and the shine of a drawn knife blade—each, multiple times. My abuser threatened my life, our child’s life and our pet’s life. But, I still felt it was my fault.  And, as a man, I wanted more than anything to “save my family” and honor my marriage vows-no matter what.

After many of the assaults, I would find myself driving – not sure of where to go. One day, I found KCM online and called. They said they would serve men, many other domestic violence centers I called only served women. I came in at a point of crisis and began what was my path to freedom.

As I spoke with the counselors there was no judgment, they wanted to hear what was happening. They knew what it was like to be on the receiving end of violence. Their compassion and tenderness was sooo needed. They helped me see that it wasn’t my fault, that I was worthy of being safe and that our child was worthy of safety too.  They provided clarity about the circumstances and helped me focus on the objective conduct of my abuser. We had to get out and KCM walked with me each step of the way. Without them, I would not have left.

Confronting my abuser in open court was the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but multiple team members from KCM were there for me. Each day of the hearings they came, encouraged me, and celebrated with me. They believed not just in my lived experience, but in my ability to be a dad and that I am a good person. They always seemed to have the right nuggets of wisdom when I needed them. I held onto them then and still do.

Now, our child is safe. I am safe. We live peacefully and free from violence. God continues to provide exactly what we need as we heal and grow.  I am forever grateful that the team at KCM was and is a BIG part of that provision. And I know one day, our child will be too.
