Allyshia’s journey from addiction and homelessness to stability
In April 2020, I was homeless, in a toxic relationship with someone who did not see my worth, and I was surrounded by trauma. I was unemployed, stole food, and arrested for missing court dates. Worst still, my four children had been placed in foster care the year before.
I was not putting the most important things first: my children and myself. I was alone with no food, no phone, and no hope. I asked God to forgive me. That night, the Lord saved me.
I slowly began my path to recovery. I packed my few belongings and asked my only friend to help me escape my life of trauma, addiction, and abuse.
