Mission Beds Save Lives: “One evening, someone was serving evening soup at the Mission when a young lady who had been staying in the Mission's Sanctuary (Emergency Shelter) as a Mission guest said, "It's my last night here." We congratulated her on finding a place, served her some soup, and wished her well. But we continued thinking about her for some time. Where was she going? Did she find a safe place? Something wasn't quite right...As we were cleaning up the kitchen the ambulance arrived… Thankfully trained Downtown Mission staff 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.”
