When Lisa received devastating news of the death of her brother and nephew, it impacted her deeply. At the same time, her health began to fail. "It just felt like I was losing everything."

During this difficult time, Lisa suddenly found herself homeless. She stayed with friends when she could, but often ended up spending nights on the street. She recalls, "You don't sleep often during the night, because you know that it's not really safe to sleep... it was scary."

Then something changed. Lisa heard about our Family Life Center and met with the staff. She was given a clean room, new clothes and a good meal. Over the next several months, she started to feel more like herself, gaining her confidence back, learning new skills and growing in her faith.

Today I have a roof over my head, clothes on my body and food in my stomach. I've been without all three and it's awful. It means a lot to know that someone is so generous to care for someone they've never met like me. Thank you.
