Being homeless is terrifying for anyone, but for a young mother and her baby it can be deadly!
“I didn’t have anywhere else to go,” Haley shared, with tears in her eyes.
“My daughter and I had been staying with my sister, but things didn’t happen as planned. We were crowding her family so I had to find somewhere else, somewhere safe for my baby to sleep.”
Thankfully, friends introduced Haley to Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (DRMM) and that has made all the difference for this frightened mother!
“Now that we’re here, my daughter is making new friends and going to school. Staying here has been a huge help. I’m able to save money and they’re helping us get into a place of our own. I’m looking forward to completing my education and looking for work,” Haley says with new-found confidence.
“My long-term goal is to become a chef, perhaps even open a restaurant of my own,” she says. “What I really hope and pray for is to have a stable home and be a good mother. I want to do the best I can for my daughter and the programs at DRMM are helping me do that.”
