Monroe Gospel Women's Mission

"Empowering Hurting Women"

Keri's Story

"For the first time in my life I had fallen into hard times. My husband had been in prison for a year. I was trying to survive on my own. I was working and when funds were available I would stay at a motel. I was homeless and I walked out of my job because I was feeling overwhelmed, paranoid and sabotaged. No matter how hard I tried I just couldn’t make things better.
  I remember thinking “Ok God, I give up. I’m going to put everything in your hands.” I called the Monroe Gospel Women’s Mission and to my surprise there was a bed available. I said, “God is good.” I found the mission to be a safe and caring environment.  I was supported and guided as I made necessary changes in my life.  After establishing a routine, I was ready to work on my action plan. The mission had mandatory classes for establishing goals, and developing boundaries for healthy relationships.  The classes have been very helpful for me. I applied for work and interviewed with several companies and temp agencies. I am now working at a natural supplements factory in Monroe. I am saving money for an apartment."
