TABITHA AND KIRSTEN FOUND THE HELP THEY NEEDED.
Tabitha is rediscovering summer with her daughter, Kirsten. She found safe shelter at the Rescue Mission and has been clean ten months. Now she is more aware than ever of the beauty of life, “I can look at a tree and notice how many different colors are on a leaf; I look at the clouds and the shapes of each individual one - it’s all so beautiful and I am so blessed to be alive.” To Tabitha, this summer is unlike others before. She found the help they needed to escape homelessness at Boise Rescue Mission Ministries. This summer she has HOPE.
Tabitha and Kirsten are not alone. Last Summer, Boise Rescue Mission Ministries provided more than 35,700 safe nights of shelter for homeless men, women, and children in our community. Here is what some others who have stayed with us and benefitted from our programs have said:
“When I walked in the door of the Rescue Mission, they had boneless chicken with this gravy on it and it was like the best chicken I had ever eaten in my life because I was so hungry. And it meant a lot; you don’t really realize how hungry you are until you start eating. Once I was full - that was the eye-opening turning point for my life.” - Rick
“Today, thanks to the Mission, I have been sober for a little over three years and I am living according to God’s plan and His will. I have full custody of both of my children and I am working hard to repair the damage that took place during my drug use. We have our own place for the first time EVER, and even have 2 dogs.” - Crystal
“Everyone at the Mission told me about the potential they saw in me, but I couldn’t see it for myself. On my own, I couldn’t change. My lenses were fogged with depression, loneliness, hopelessness, and lies. It wasn’t until I was able to take off those lenses and start seeing myself through Christ’s eyes that I was able to see that they were right. The Rescue Mission gave that to me.” - Andrew
When you give to Boise Rescue Mission Ministries you are giving so much more than just a meal or safe shelter for the night. You are giving opportunities for a better future - a Summer of Hope for those, like Tabitha, who need a hand up in our community. Give now and your gift will be DOUBLED. Don't wait - REPLACE HOMELESSNESS WITH HOPE TODAY!
Thank you for giving!
