Rebecca’s Story

“My main goal is finding work and being the person I want to be.”

When Rebecca got married, it felt like the start of a wonderful life. She soon had beautiful young kids and what seemed like a loving relationship with her husband. But things soon changed for the worse as he began abusing drugs and alcohol.

As his chemical dependence deepened, his expressions of love to Rebecca and their children turned to anger and rage. He began to be physically, mentally and emotionally abusive.

“I hit rock bottom when he started threatening to have me murdered by his family,” Rebecca says.

Rebecca had to leave, but she had nowhere to go. Thankfully, she found City Rescue Mission, and we welcomed them in right away.

As Rebecca worked through our programs, she began healing and recovering from the trauma she had endured. Today, she feels like a new person, ready to do whatever she can to improve her life and the lives of her kids.

She is looking forward to graduating and living independently with her children.

“My main goal is finding work and being the person I want to be,” she says. “I don’t want to be scared or afraid anymore. I want to push forward and give my best shot at showing who I really am.”
