I've personally been working with homeless-single-pregnant-women for over seven years. Each one of them has their own unique story and circumstances. Most women reach us because of abusive relationships. Sometimes that means abuse from a parent or other family member living under the same roof. They choose to be homeless rather than living under those conditions and that is SO BRAVE!
These women represent what it means to overcome! They triumph in every area of their lives - establishing healthy relationships, establishing stable independence, and most importantly establishing a personal relationship with Christ. You and I know that if you have Christ as your foundation it makes ALL things possible but these women haven't heard that concept before. This is why we teach finance, budgeting, and stability that are based on scripture.
God's Word is the foundation on which we teach and stand - all other is sinking sand.
