Millie lives in Edmonton, Alberta. Today she is thankful to have a home, health, and one year of sobriety. Two years ago, Millie was facing eviction and homelessness. Without Bissell Centre’s hot meals, Millie would have gone hungry, and without help from their caring staff, she would have ended up back on the streets.

Millie has battled addiction, violence, and poverty all her life. She grew up in a turbulent, sometimes violent household. After watching and experiencing the cycle of substance abuse in her family, she vowed to never drink, but things didn’t go the way she planned.

At 24, Millie fell in love, got married, and had two children. After a few years together, her husband’s behaviour became all too familiar. He had an alcohol addiction and was becoming increasingly violent. Millie started coping by drinking as well. Soon, she was forced to pack up her kids and move into her car until she could get into a shelter.

Life as a single parent was never easy, but Millie was determined to give her kids a good life. Millie and her kids have had many successes together, but sadly, the pain of Millie’s childhood and married years was always there in the background. Two years ago her rent was raised unexpectedly. Needless to say, she was struggling to put food on the table.

Bissell Centre’s Community Bridge program helped Millie with rent and utilities in time of emergency. “I was so incredibly relieved to get help and not be struggling by myself anymore. Now I have a safe home to go to every night, and for that I’m so grateful,” says Millie.

Bissell Centre is one of the many community ministries across Canada that is supported by Mission & Service.

If Mission & Service giving is already a regular part of your life, thank you so much! If you have not given, please join me in making Mission & Service giving a regular part of your life of faith. Loving our neighbour is at the heart of our Mission & Service.
