A Former Guest's Story:
I came to Sister José’s in 2013. I never knew the center existed. I became homeless and didn’t know where to go. When I arrived, I met one of the staff and she asked me a lot of questions. Our talks gave me a new way to see things. Sister José’s is really nice because they help you solve problems and focus on your wellbeing and that’s what I needed. It was great.
