Alan's Story of Hope

Alan came to our Burnside Shelter for a meal, but found something more through our Learning Center.

Men like Alan are hungry for more than just a meal. They want a way back home. They want freedom from addiction and the root causes of homelessness. Our 12- to 18-month recovery programs for men and women offer just that.

Your gift today provides food, clothing and shelter. And you help provide recovery programs that give hurting people a second chance at life. Thanks.
