“In my addiction I didn’t care what happened or who it happened to,” Vincent says. “Now I look back and I praise God for letting me live through all that.” Because of you, his life has been transformed at UGM-TC. Watch now as he tells you his story.
Vincent thought he had it all. Holding down a steady job, he intended to make the most of every opportunity. But one day, suddenly, he lost his job . . . and his life began spiraling downward out of control.
“I was on drugs, and I just didn’t care,” Vincent says. He lost his home and spent six months on the streets. That was bad enough, but a phone call from his brother really shook him: “Mom has had a series of strokes.”
Vincent says that’s what woke him up . . . a shock of reality that told him he needed to put his life back together. A few weeks later, he arrived at Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County.
“If anybody out there wants help, this is the place to get it,” Vincent says. “I wake up every morning feeling good. That’s something I never did. I thank God for giving me breath,” he adds. “In my addiction, I didn’t care what happened, or who it happened to. Now I look back and praise God for letting me live through all that.”
Thanks to friends like you who believed in him, Vincent is a new man today. As he nears his graduation from the men’s program, Vincent looks forward to starting a new job, and to having a place of his own once more.
Looking forward to a whole new life
