Homeless and unemployed I wanted to build a new life for myself and my daughter. I enrolled in the Grace Like Rain program, where I found my new home and the support that I needed to set and achieve ambitious goals. No longer worrying about where we was going to sleep each night. I began focusing on my goals with the support from my case manager. She helped me put my goals into perspective and I'm so grateful for that. Sometimes, when I felt deeply sad, depressed and angry they would always say "you are not alone". It took me about a year to finally realize that the GLR wasn't the enemies. That I can let my guard down being around them its almost as if everyone becomes so intimate and intertwined with each other thoughts and emotions that they become one, a single unit, A FAMILY. At that point in my life I knew it was time to transition, embrace change and thrive. I had no idea where to start. Change your habits. Change what you read. Change how you talk to yourself and others those was some of the ideas I was giving by my coach. Being apart of the GLR family made me feel safe. I realize that you don't have to be rich to be happy. Instead you're happy because your unconditionally loved, cherished, and accepted. The Grace Like Rain made me feel all of those things. -QB
