remembering those in need Charlene never saw love and acceptance in her father’s eyes when he looked at her. All she saw was his indifference. She tried so hard to fill that void in her heart, but chasing after love from others led to heartache after heartache. At her lowest point, homeless with her young daughter, Charlene saw the sadness her daughter’s eyes and knew she had to find the kind of love that could heal her, inside and out. Coming to Wheeler changed Charlene’s life. Abandoned as a child, Charlene always felt worthless… discarded. Watch Charlene’s Story    Youtube

Breana’s heart is filled with GRATITUDE for YOU!

Breana’s struggle with addiction was fueled by the abandonment she felt from her parents. After going to prison and relapsing, Breana knew she wanted to change and went to Wheeler Mission for help. Now studying for a Bachelor’s degree, Breana is building a life she is proud of.
