Woman Finds Hope and New Start at Mission

Walking the Honor Road to Victory

Full of life, loyal and servant-hearted are just a few of the words that come to mind when thinking about Sarah. 

A little over two years ago, Sarah walked into our doors with a smile and a song all the while facing all the common obstacles of being homeless.

A recent transplant from Kansas, Sarah was staying at another shelter until 2021 when she found a new place to call home. She worked hard applying for apartments and with the help of our case manager was able to find a place in a safe neighborhood with good access to public transportation and shopping. Even after she was housed, Sarah found a way to come to our Honor Road program every Tuesday and Thursday.
On Tuesday, July 19th, Sarah completed Year One of the Honor Road Program. Her supporters, teachers, accountability partners, peers and church family came out to celebrate her achievement. In true Sarah spirit, she requested a Hawaiian luau theme.
?Honor Road volunteer, Sandy Gorman says it best when she stated, “Sarah has a way of brightening my day. Whether it’s breaking out in song, drawing artwork on the chalkboard or just a good hug.” Way to go, Sarah! We are proud of you!
