why we're doing it

I WAS ONCE HOMELESS DUE TO A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SITUATION AND I ALMOST DIED. SINCE I WAS EMPLOYED, MANY PLACES WOULDN’T HELP ME. I WAS MORTIFIED AT ALL OF THE THINGS THAT I HAD TO GO THROUGH AND THEN WAS TOLD NO. I FELT AWFUL.  I NEVER WANT ANYONE TO FEEL LIKE THAT-EVER. THERE ARE MANY STIGMAS THAT GO ALONG WITH HAVING A NEED, AND THESE WALLS PROVIDE FOR THOSE WHO MAY BE TO AFRAID OR TOO ASHAMED TO ASK.

WHAT STARTED OFF AS 1 WALL AND LABOR OF LOVE HAS EVOLVED INTO 52. TO DATE, I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF COLLABORATING TO ASSIST 6111 PEOPLE SINCE NOVEMBER OF 2018.  I WANT TO KEEP GOING, AND ONE DAY I WOULD LIKE THIS TO BE A NATIONWIDE MOVEMENT!
