Rodney’s Story

Rodney smiles while telling his story about his experience with city rescue mission

“When I got here, I had such a sense of relief.”

After nearly a decade of struggling to survive on the streets, Rodney was able to pave his way back to a fruitful life. He got his CDL to drive semi-trucks, which he found fulfilling. But after a rough patch, he turned to substances for relief. Rodney spiraled downward.

“My rock bottom was being unable to support myself and being a non-functioning member of society,” he remembers. “I had absolutely nothing and no one.”

What Rodney would soon know was that although he felt entirely alone, City Rescue Mission was standing by, ready to help.

“When I got here, I had such a sense of relief that I had somewhere to go on a journey to get myself right,” Rodney says.

Today, thanks to our recovery program and his work therapy in the kitchen, Rodney is feeling better than ever. After graduation, Rodney plans to resume truck driving and live a sober, productive life.

It is only because of supporters like you that City Rescue Mission can continue to keep its doors open for people like Rodney. Thank you for changing lives.
