Community, Events, Homelessness
The need in King County is extending beyond our ability to keep up without your help. Men, women, and families are finding themselves unable to make ends meet, with no other option but living on the streets.
Your gifts help homeless people like Anthony
“I grew up in a foster home. My foster mom was abusive . . . I got beat a lot. Around age 15, I thought, ‘I’m over this.’ I had to go to school with a black eye. Those things forced me out the door.”
“When I think about it now, it was lonely. Beyond the abusive home life, I ended up in abusive relationships. Eventually, I found my way to cocaine. I was living on the streets . . . with nowhere to go and nobody to turn to.”
Today, Anthony is a graduate of our recovery program. “I got a GED . . . I’ve stepped into a new life. It’s like I’ve arrived and I’m home, and my roots are digging deep and healthy. I couldn’t have done that on my own,” he says.
The Mission is nothing without those who help transform lives, and that’s you!
