"Without them we could not have achieved our dream."

Elizabeth's Story

When the unimaginable happens, Gabriel's Horn Shelter for Women and Children is there to help. They provide temporary housing, job search assistance, and necessary support and comfort to women and children in need.

The story below was shared with us by former Gabriel's Horn residents, Elizabeth and her daughter.

"In November of 2018 we got evicted from our apartment due to my husband and I separating. At the moment I didn't have a job. I thought my world was crumbling, til we moved into Gabriel's Horn. There my daughter and I met literally angels sent from heaven, Mignon, Robin and the board members. Without them we could not have achieved our dream. We spent three months there. Those three months I worked non-stop, so did my daughter. We are proud to say that we have moved out into our new apartment and I got a higher rank at work. Thank You to Gabriel's Horn."
