Nia’s story – Orlando Union Rescue Mission

Nia’s story

 In Story

Nia is just one of more than 60 children staying with their families at Orlando Union Rescue Mission’s Family Home. In fact, a third of our guests are boys and girls under 18 who became homeless through no fault of their own. And as their parents work hard to rebuild their lives, these kids face their own unique challenges.

Nia is an overcomer. She arrived in January with her mom, dad, and two younger brothers, and is starting eighth grade this month. She gets good grades and made the varsity softball team as a seventh grader.

The Mission’s Family Life Center was designed to help kids like Nia make the best of a difficult situation. These children receive the structure, guidance, and love they need to succeed and grow academically, emotionally, and spiritually. Meanwhile, parents can work and attend classes knowing their kids are safe and cared for.

Your gifts ensure our kids receive these services for free. Your help breaks the intergenerational cycle of poverty and homelessness and transforms the lives of these children and their families.

On behalf of Nia and the rest of the Mission’s kids, we just want to say thank you!
