One day, Dee found a dollar sitting in the bottom of her purse. Every time she thought about spending it though, she couldn’t find it. It wasn’t until she became homeless and needed a ride to the Mission that she found that dollar. “I needed that dollar for the bus ride to get to the Mission for shelter. That is how I know it was God who brought me here,” shares Dee.
Unfortunate life circumstances left Dee feeling alone and vulnerable for most of her life. “I wasn’t surrounded by the best people before the Mission and my living situation was never good.” Although she was terrified when she became homeless, Dee now feels it was actually for the best.
