Mission Beds Save Lives: “A few weeks ago I was serving the evening soup at the Mission when a young lady who had been staying as a mission guest told me "It's my last night here." I congratulated her on finding a place, served her some soup, and wished her well. But I continued thinking about her for some time. Where was she going? Did she find a safe place? Something wasn't quite right...As I was cleaning up the kitchen the ambulance arrived…" Thankfully trained Downtown Mission staff counselors realized quickly that she intended to take her own life. This was not her last night at the Mission it was her "last night." "Immediately the young mission guest was surrounded by support and connected with the special assistance she needed to make it through her darkest night.” – Fiona Coughlin
