“…most importantly, don’t be afraid to ask for help.”
Evonne said: “What I was trying was not working, so I had to try someone else’s way.” Before coming to Providence House, Evonne had money coming in, she just did not know how to manage it. Her father had been donating to Providence House for years and told her about the program. The first time he urged her to enter, she didn’t go. Finally, after realizing she had no other options, she called.
For Evonne, there was not anything hard about the program. She was homeless and was willing to do whatever it took to get her life together. She says she even did chores no one else was willing to do because she wanted to learn to take care of herself. While at Providence House she developed a better relationship with her children and learned to see things through until the end. She knows her bad choices do not define who she is.
Evonne’s case manager describes her as an encourager. She has a testimony that she is willing to share so that she can help as many people as possible.
Her plans for the future include buying a house and a truck and, eventually, going to culinary school.
Her advice to those who are still on their journey at Providence House is to “follow the rules and not give up. And most importantly, don’t be afraid to ask for help.”
