Bradley's Story of Hope

Bradley laughed at the dark irony. For the last 30 years, he justified his growing addiction with the shallow, comforting thought. “I might be an alcoholic. But no matter how bad it gets, I won’t be living in a tent or under a bridge.” But he was wrong.

Walking out of the hotel with just a few dollars to his name, Bradley tried to push aside the shock of what had happened. After years of barely holding it together, he’d just lost his job, his last hold on a normal life. He walked out into the cold, feeling broken and alone, with nothing but a coat. He was homeless.




Thanks to generous friends like you, Bradley celebrates the longest period of sobriety he’s had in 30 years.

Christian's Story of Hope

Christian spent 7 hard months on the streets of Portland. Worn out from the summer heat and carrying his few belongings on his back, he’d often end the day sleeping on the rocky ground – afraid.

'You have to worry about somebody robbing you or beating you in the middle of the night,” says Christian. “And there’s rats crawling across you while you’re sleeping. It’s just horrible.




Thanks to generous friends like you, Christian found the family he always longed for.

Xavier's Story of Hope

Xavier never dreamed that he’d end up homeless. But at age 13, life on the streets seemed easier than enduring more abuse at home.

“It was scary, because you never know where your next meal’s going to come from. It was hunger pains. Not having clean clothes. It felt like hopelessness.”




Thanks to generous friends like you, Xavier is off the streets and has been restored. Now he's filled with joy, livened by his faith and has a hope for his future that never existed before.
