Overcoming Grief and Drugs At Becky’s Place – 6th Annual Run for Hope 5K Family Fun Walk Thanksgiving Day

(BEDFORD) – Mary came to Becky’s Place at the age of 65 after a very difficult period in her life.

Two close family members had recently committed suicide and she was struggling with grief.

She then turned to drugs to cope with the loses she had experienced.

Mary came to Becky’s Place with no home, family or energy to overcome the challenges in her life.

Thanks to the dedicated staff at Becky’s Place, Mary slowly started to get back on her feet. Becky’s Place assisted her with getting Social Security benefits and working toward finding a place to live.

Recently, Mary moved into her own apartment and is looking forward to continuing the life she had once thought lost.

She thought she was down and out but thanks to the help of Becky’s Place, she was able to over the challenges in her life and start anew.

Becky’s Place is designed to “provide shelter and create hope” for women and children who are experiencing homelessness and moving toward a life of self-sufficiency.

You can help. Their next fundraising event is the 6th Annual Run for Hope 5K Family Fun Walk on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28 at Harp Commons. The event will begin at 9:30 a.m.
