Gina learns to trust again…
Within a year of being molested, at just 12 years old, Gina started a downward spiral into addiction. “It just numbed all my pain. I didn’t have to think about all the stuff I’d gone through.”
Destructive relationships and deeper addiction drove Gina to homelessness as an adult. “I couch-surfed for many years. I slept on floors, slept in my car because I didn’t have any place to go,” she recalls. “I burned bridges with everybody I knew because of my addiction.”
At Portland Rescue Mission, God began to heal the trauma of Gina’s past. She’s walking into a healthy life she never thought possible.
