This was the last house on the block for me.

Heroin addiction had torn Mike’s entire life apart. He had lost his job. His home. His family.
Custody of his son. Everything. Relationships were so shattered he had no one to turn to for help.

“This was the last house on the block for me,” he says. “If it wasn’t for the Rescue Mission, I do not know where I’d be right now.”

Mike is living a new life—and it’s better than he imagined. He graduated from our 12-month Residential Recovery Program last summer and now works here at the Mission with our homeless guests and finds a great deal of joy and purpose in giving back and serving others.

“You guys helped me get my life back.”
