“I called CPS on myself,” says Nelson. “It was the toughest thing I’ve ever had to do. I told them I was a single father, and a drug addict, and I needed help.”
With over 30 years of drug addiction, prison life and gang affiliation behind him, Nelson now hopes to give back as a father to his own children and mentoring troubled youth.

When LaToya and her husband separated, she and her daughter lived in a hotel room, trying to start over…
But money ran out quickly and so they were asked to leave in the middle of the night, with one bag.They stayed in the safety of a McDonald’s until it closed, but headed out again into the darkness. Miraculously, a kind driver passing by saw them out alone and offered to pay for a couple of nights in a hotel. And eventually LaToya found her way into the program at the Corona Norco Rescue Mission.
Join us in praying for Latoya and her daughter as they work to get back up on their feet!
