RogerAfter getting involved with gangs at the age of 13, and being charged with murder at age 17, Roger thought his life was over. Until a friend who was going through the Mission's recovery program, told him there was hope!
Roger was stuck in a cycle of violence and addiction, but today he’s free, thanks to you!
“By high school, I was already caught up in gangs and involved in a lot of bad activity as a teenager. At 17, I was charged with attempted murder. After spending two years in jail, I was acquitted of my charges. But I came out as a heavy meth user.
“In my addiction, I was guilt-ridden. But today I am free. Growing up in gangs you learn to hate a lot of people. Today, that’s not the case. I don’t have an inch of hate in me anymore. I just have more love.
“I don’t have an inch of hate in me anymore. I just have more love.”
Every $44.55 enables someone to receive a day of extensive, 360-degree support and recovery services that changed Roger’s life.
That includes meals, shelter, hygiene, clothing, staff support, and classes — everything the Mission provides for lasting transformation.
There are so many others who need a chance to experience the freedom Roger is living today. Please give generously.
