Racheal had been calling 211 (The United Way Homeless Services Hotline) for three days straight only to be told, each day, there were no rooms available. On the third day the information specialist from 211 suggested she call NLEC – New Life Evangelistic Center.
Racheal needed shelter because she had to run from an abusive partner who was sexually and financially abusing her. She was at her wits end and with a small thin blanket ran away leaving all of her possessions behind. She mentally prepared herself to sleep out in the cold 5-degree weather with a wind chill of minus 15 degrees.
While Racheal was more than grateful for the assistance, NLEC is even more grateful to YOU and ALL of our partners who help NLEC to be there when people are hurting and homeless and need help.
