This year I met a young woman named Alison who used to sleep on the steps of this building. She refused shelter, insisting that she felt safest on these steps. She spent most of her time completely drunk. We told her every day that Jesus loves her, and that He has more for her life than alcoholism and abuse. We would give her blankets, shoes, and food, and she began to come to our Sunday church services. Last November, Alison finally enrolled in a Salvation Army drug rehabilitation program, and today she is sober, working, loving Jesus, and learning to serve others in His name.
