Lisa, The Bowery Mission

You might remember Lisa. We shared her story last year about the help she found at our Women's Center.

After coming to The Bowery Mission from a state hospital, Lisa found a place where she could rest and focus on healing on the inside. With time to overcome pain from her past, Lisa received grace and hope to move forward in a healthier frame of mind.

As Lisa gained confidence and ability, she began volunteering in our new Community Hope Resource Center in Harlem where neighborhood residents can learn skills to navigate out of cycles of poverty. Giving back to others has shown Lisa that God has a purpose for her life and can use her to give hope to others!

"Working at the Hope Center, you get to be with people. You see people changing from the inside out. You see the difference you can make," Lisa shares.

"You see people changing from the inside out."

Utilizing the skills she gained while volunteering, Lisa applied for full-time positions. We're excited to share that she recently accepted a job at local non-profit where she'll continue using her gifts to help others!

"I'm very excited," Lisa adds. "I received so much help with my resume, improving my spreadsheet skills, doing budgets. Now, I have a permanent job. I'm so grateful for everything The Bowery Mission has done in my life!"

Thank you for your support that has helped Lisa—and women just like her—start a new chapter in their lives! Your generous gifts restore hope this Easter and all year long.
