Robert's Story of Hope

Robert is a machinist, making useful tools out of raw materials -- much like God has done for him.

Robert's Story of Hope (Quicktime Version)

Robert came to us after years of drug use starting at age 13, he was incarcerated from age 15 to 18, then suffered severe medical problems and entered multiple detox programs for alcoholism. He lost his job, his home, his wife and his son.

After graduating from our New Life Recovery program, Robert is employed again and starting over. "A miracle has happened - I'm alive, I'm sober...the Mission saved my life."

Your donation today helps bring moms and kids back together and creates healthy families.
