Helping people when they need it most
While Adell Walker was homeless, he ate at Catholic Charities West Michigan's God's Kitchen. Now, after a chance encounter with a Grand Rapids bigwig and 15 years of food, fellowship, and devoted service, Mr. Walker is a friend to many and fondly known as the "Mayor of Division Avenue."
“I go home with the satisfaction of knowing that I helped someone who is deserving of it and in need of it.”
“It’s the highlight of my week! It’s a reminder that we are part of the bigger community, and we should be giving back.”
“It changes you for that moment, and for a lot of people, it can change them for life.”
