You’re not just changing lives — you’re saving them.

By Carla McRee

Erin’s* story isn’t easy to hear. It is heartbreaking and unthinkable that a young woman would face so much hardship in her life, all before she was even 21 years old.

We don’t share her story to shock you — we share it to help you understand the impact of your support. Your faithful generosity doesn’t simply change the lives of women in desperate need — in many cases, you are saving them.

At its heart, that’s the Easter message: we were dead in our sin and pain, and yet God reached out to us with mercy and love. Erin didn’t even know what God’s grace was when she came through our doors — but today she knows she is accepted and forgiven. It’s a true miracle.

To share that message of hope with women like Erin, we start by meeting their basic needs — food and safety. For just $14.90 per day, you can bring a woman and her child off the streets. Not only that, you can give them an opportunity to start a brand new life.
Thank you for praying for our precious families and giving as generously as you can. We are also so grateful for all of your prayers since Steve’s accident in December. Day by day we feel blessed to see improvement, and so appreciate your kind words of encouragement!

God bless you, and Happy Easter!

In Jesus’ Name,

Steve and Carla McRee
