I used to be homeless but thanks to God and the Salvation Army I now am happily married and we live in a nice apartment. I went through the year long program there, "Homeward Bound." If anyone out there is homeless and you happen to read this, know that there is help and hope ! Another agency that helped me was "Community Support Professionals." They are a good source for someone who is looking to regain there place in society. If anyone reads this and knows of someone that needs help, please pass this info on to them. God Bless you all.
