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

Elizabeth's Story

When the unimaginable happens, our network is there to provide temporary housing, job search assistance, food and necessary support and comfort those in need.

In November of 2018 Elizabeth and her daughter were evicted from our apartment. "At the time I didn't have a job and I thought my world was crumbling, until we moved into Gabriel's Horn."

Gabriel's Horn Shelter for Women and Children provides women shelter and job placement assistance. Elizabeth and her daughter spent three months there while they worked nonstop to get back on their feet. At the end of three months, they moved out into a new apartment and Elizabeth had even recieved a promotion at work.

"There we met angels sent from heaven. Without them we could not have achieved our dream. Thank You, Gabriel's Horn."
