Tiffany Mitchell's Testimony

My name is Tiffany Mitchell. I am a 32 year old wife and motherof 3 boys, ages, 11, 7 & 3. About a month ago, my family and I were HOMELESS. We were at the very lowest point our lives, staying from house to house and not having a stable place for my children to call home. I was depressed and in despair. I was staying with my mom who was  on section 8 in a one bedroom for one month. The rental office was notified of our presence. They immediately gave my mom a notice that we had to vacate that evening or she would be evicted. My mother is 65 years old and disabled, so we had no choice but to leave. I was at the end and my ony choice was to go into a shelter and put my children in foster care. While waiting for 6pm to come which would begin our journey to nowhere, I picked up a copy of the East County Times, I turned the page to a big article about a man named "Tim" who was homeless and his life had been turned around with the help from a group of women called "Women of Worth" (W.O.W.) Not knowing who these women were or really how much they could help me, I called the two phone numbers at the bottom of the article. These women were Sheila Boller and Debra Gallio. I left messages giving my name, and that I was homeless, and I did not know what to do or who to turn to. My family and I had no place to go and I love my children dearly and did not want to place them in Foster Care. This was ripping my heart out! I read how Women of Worth helped get Tim off the street, walk him through the Social Security System and provide him with mentoring and help that he had not received because of his handicaps. He had basically fallen through the cracks of our Social Services system. He now had positive people and influences in his life to help him. Suddenly my heart was filled with HOPE that if these women had helped Tim they may also be able to help my family as well.

Well, needless to say that phone call was the best decision I have ever made. About an hour later, I received a phone call from the two women I had left messages for, who I now consider to be a big part of my family. They said, don't do anything and don't go anywhere, we can help you. I told them that I had to leave by 6pm that very day and I had no place to go. By the way, this was Friday and everything was basically closed at this point. They ask me if I could find a temporary place to stay until Monday and then they would provide a place. I told them that I thought I could, but was not positive. So, I took the last $40.00 we had to our name, caught a cab to Edgewood where my girlfriend used to live. By the way, I had not talked with her in quite a while and did not know if she even still lived there. I did not have her phone number, so we took a chance. Thank God, she was still there and told us that we could stay for the weekend. Now, let me get to the good stuff.  I mean all the miracles God has done in my life. Because of this caring, loving, and generous group of women called "W.O.W.", I now have a place to stay. My husband has a job with a plumbing company as an apprentice. Two days later he received a raise and works overtime. My children have received new school supplies, clothes and we have never wanted for food. We have transportation to and from places we need to go. These women are not just helping my family because our life was a mess and their program could help clean it up, but they helped because they really care. They have a burning passion in their heart that could have only been placed there by God. Easter Sunday was truly a blessing to my family and I. We were taken out and outfitted with new clothing, my children received Easter Baskets with lots of candy and we enjoyed a beautiful service at the Apostolic Life Center. God has blessed my family and has been working through this program to help encourage, mentor and help families like me to be built up  with hope and faith and a promise  that each day Will be a better day. They have helped me look to the future, (which I never had before) and have encouraged me that with GOD, EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.  I know they are there to help me when ever, where ever and with what ever I need. I have found a peace in my life and in my heart and I now know that my children can go to school and come home to a place of peace and comfort, all because of a  wonderful and annointed woman who is part of my church family at the Apostolic Life Center. She opened her heart and her home to me and my family. The possibilites are endless now because of this wonderful program. My goal is to become a part of this program and give back what has been given to me. All of this has been made possible because of the belief and passion in the heart of the women who created "Women of Worth". Even while the program has succeeded in my life I can't imagine my life without these women who continue mentoring me and being in my life as friends and family. So, I cannot say "Thanks" enough!!

So, if you are reading my testimony, and have a need or you feel you have something to offer the program, please let them know. Women of Worth are still looking for a building that can be used for transitional housing for families, like myself and others. I am sure through their endless and unselfish efforts this will transpire soon.

 

Thank you for reading my testimony.
