Heather had pretty much given up on life before coming to the Union Gospel Mission. She had been in and out of hospitals for mental health issues.
“I was so broken. I was like, ‘Please, I want to stay here. I don’t want to go out there because I’m going to do something to myself, but they couldn’t keep me anymore, so they referred me to the Crisis Shelter. “The people who stepped into my life during that time were just constant and consistent. Every time I would push them away, they would love me. And ‘I love you. Love you. Love you.’ Just like Jesus does.”
Today, Heather has completed UGM Recovery. She has a job, an apartment with a roommate, and she loves to run.
