Patrick Drennen's Story
I came to Mission Outreach looking for a roof over my head. I was having issues with my family and
suddenly found myself homeless. Mission Outreach gave me shelter and they provided me with
resources that eventually helped me move out on my own. If I could tell people seeking help from
Mission Outreach one thing it would be to utilize the resources that they offer. If residents would take
advantage of what Mission Outreach has to offer, then they will help you do anything.
They helped me
get my social security and disability, SNAP funds, and insurance. I also experienced some health issues
while at Mission Outreach which caused me to need a couple of surgeries. They played a big role in
helping me recover from those surgeries. Once I learned to use Mission Outreach’s resources and
saving money, I stuck around a little longer to help out the Mission. Soon after, I was able to save up
enough money to buy a car, put a security deposit down and first month’s rent, and live on my own.
