Julie B. was a homeless person who sat on the corner of Bissonnet and Beltway 8 for several years. As I sat at the light waiting for it to change, in my heart, I asked God what I could possibly do to help someone like her. Two days later, I was allowed to take Julie to lunch. As we talked, I found that her only desire was to go to a particular school located in Chicago. I asked her if I could get her there would she go, she lit up with a solid yes. So that afternoon, I researched the school, then called the director to find out if she could get in. The director wanted to speak with Julie first before making a decision, so the next day I found Julie and put them on the phone together. The director agreed to let her attend the school, but we would have to get her there. So with that, I started looking to raise bus fare to send Julie to Chicago. With the help of several giving individuals, Julie was off to Chicago the next week. Today, I am happy to announce ~ Julie B. graduated from the school ~ when she called to tell me I almost did not recognize her; her voice was that of a totally changed woman. Thank you to all those who helped change the life of one woman. You guys rock! Julie is now a life long friend. We are so proud of her and how far she’s come. (imaged used by permission).
