“I didn’t have anywhere else to go.”

Stories of Hope
“I didn’t have anywhere else to go.” For years, Lou lived from paycheck to paycheck, until the stress of being so behind on his bills led to a severe depression. He tried to
recover on his own, but only felt more hopeless – and lost his job and apartment. Finally, Lou checked into a local hospital for help with his depression. “I had never been in a situation like that before. It was definitely scary.” But it was where he first heard about the Allentown Rescue Mission.
Lou entered our Christian Living Program and reconnected
with the Lord. “I’ve grown quite a bit – I’m learning about the Bible and I started praying again.” Now, he plans to go back to school and has already applied for a training program at a local hospital. “I’m working toward a goal of getting a job, then a car and my own place.” He’s thankful for his time in our care, and the lessons he has learned. “They help a lot of people at the Mission. It’s reinforced my Christian values and I’m grateful.”
