A woman walked into the shelter for the first time a few months ago.  Like many women who stay at the shelter at first, she had a challenging time trusting the hosts.  She appeared bitter, angry and alone.

However, in just a few short months her attitude has drastically changed for the better.  Her mentor and other hosts notice she smiles, forgives and thinks positively more now.  She has developed a trusting relationship with her mentor.  She attends church and Bible study regularly.  This woman has experienced the love of Christ because the volunteers in the shelter have shown her grace, acceptance and love.
