LOST AND FOUND

Meet our friend, Ms. P

I was lost. I was living in a park in Plano. I went to the Good Samaritan in Garland and all of a sudden, they said wait on this big bus. And then I met Kylie, and she got me my birth certificate and social and she hooked me up with a man named Andrew at the Salvation Army last year. Andrew got me an apartment and I've been there ever since. I've been on my job; I've made a supervisor for training now and I'm just so happy. My year will be up in February, thanks to Metro Relief and every shelter I've been to. Metro Relief and Kylie are miracles, this place is a miracle worker! And thanks to God and to all of you for what you do, Ms. P is happy and I’m a supervisor training people now. Look at God.”

Want to help people like Ms P get off the streets? Donate $5 or volunteer on the relief bus.
