Restoration Stories

‘My life has turned around here’

Meet Gené, who came to the Mission’s Crisis Center to escape an abusive situation. She rebuilt her faith and her life, successfully completing our Women’s Life Recovery Program.


“I used to be one of those Christian kids who could recite the Bible – Old Testament, New Testament,” she says. “I can still remember a lot of those verses. But they mean something now. Before, I was learning them in Christian school for points. But when I had those scary times, I didn’t go to those verses.

“Now, with help from the Mission staff and the other residents, I’m literally putting it into practice.”
