In the details...
18 years ago, Phyllis first found the Lord when He delivered her from a debilitating heroin addiction. Years later she found herself in another difficult situation as she went through a painful divorce and found herself homeless. She stayed in various shelters during that time and one day someone mentioned Open Door Ministries. Phyllis looked into Still Waters Housing, came to an interview on aWednesday, and moved into Chayah House the following Monday! She began to find stability and support as she made positive changes in her life. Phyllis shared, "My relationship with the Lord grew and I could finally see the light at the end of the tunnel." Three months into the program, Phyllis was hired as a Family Room Assistant. We've seen her thrive in her job there as she pours back into the ODM community and inspires others to take positive steps forward.
