Mary was a 33-year-old woman. She had a college degree & if she walked in the door, you wouldn't know she was homeless.
She had a cocaine problem in college that destroyed her life.
She would often say, "I don't deserve to be here, I have a degree." We would walk with her, pray with her, listen to her story & help her dream. She got a job & worked night shift during the pandemic. She would return from work around 11 o'clock at night.
We helped her with some budgeting & she was able to move on to permanent housing. When she left the shelter, she left with $8,000.
