  • Description

    I am a Social Worker at Guma San Jose Homeless Shelter and a pastor's wife.  My husband and have been helping homeless since November 1, 2010, when the Manna Fellowship was established.  We feed homeless everyday except Saturday at Dededo Mayor's Office front porch and runs Second Chance Thrift Store in the Compadres Mall.  We pick up the homeless children who live in Swamp Road and Y-Sengsong Rd to the church every Sunday and have seen their dire educational environment.  So we started the Manna Learing Center in July 7, 2016 at my house, expecting we would be able to help the poor children to catch up their educational level and assist them to enjoy studying.
