"The Mission has been a rock for me"

I wouldn't have made it this far without The Rolla Mission

Imagine, you are 49 years old, and your car payment is the biggest obstacle standing in the way of you living in a house vs. in your car where you live now. You also have COPD, a chronic condition that affects your lungs, and not much hope that things will change. Your two dogs keep you company throughout each night in your small 4-door sedan that you keep running 24 hours a day. 

 

This was how Renee lived each day and had relied on The Rolla Mission for day shelter, a place to eat, as a place to use the restroom - and as the home base for her car. Most importantly, Renee worked with a Case Manager at The Rolla Mission throughout the years. 

Recently, after years of living out of her car with her two dogs, Renee was connected with and accepted into a program that will provide her with monthly housing assistance for the rest of her life!

After 10 years of living in Rolla, she will be in a home of her own. Renee sees herself as a survivor, not a victim. She says, "This is the only resource here for people without a place to stay at night. The Mission is a real need. I wouldn't have made it this far without help."
