Success Story



I was staying with my cousin, her six children and husband and it was crowded.  She saw the Renewal House sign at the hairdresser, so I gave Karen Messina a call.

It felt bad to be older and not have a place of my own; I had a part time job and was under a doctor’s care.  I was not on disability yet.  My knee was acting up badly and it was hard to get around.  Apartments were sky high and it was hard for me to get around to see them.  Driving was stressful for me so I turned my license in.

When I found Renewal House, it was a blessing for me.  I made friends with the other residents.  We had Bible Study and monthly house meetings.  I became more interested in the things that were going on here.

I cooked whatever I wanted once a week.  We all pitched in to do chores and dishes.  We all got along very good.  It was just like another family.

I have four children of my own, twelve grandchildren and became great, great grandmother last August.
