“Besides helping feed me and putting a roof over my head, Evelyn’s House has provided help and support to get my life back on track. Since I’ve been here, I’ve been able to focus on making myself a better person. I’ve seen so many positive changes in my life since being here and I’m honestly so grateful.” –A Young Mother from Evelyn’s House
