I was guided by the police on a Sunday to go to St. Patrick’s Center and knock on the door and someone would come and help me. I went there, and knocked on the door but no one came. As I waited outside, Rev. Rice came, and provided me and several other homeless individuals who were waiting with food, water, care kits and HOPE! Rev. Rice told me about the NLEC Safe Houses and I felt relieved that I had a place to spend the night rather than just “hanging out” at St. Patrick’s Center. I felt welcomed at the women’s Safe House. I thank God for how He helped me in my time of need.
