A Letter From Mr. Rawls


I pray all is well with you and the staff at Friendship Place. I just wanted to take the time out to thank you and all of your staff for the actions you take on a regular basis to help the homeless.

I was diagnosed with epilepsy 2 years ago. I lost my job, my car, and my relationship within 6 months. I eventually had to leave the home I worked so hard for. Life was pretty rough until I met a person who told me about your program.

I was eventually assigned a housing worker named Rachel Goodling. Rachel has helped me in so many ways in my housing, way of thinking throughout the hardships, and honestly my whole life.

I’m so thankful for all you did for me.

Bless your entire staff.

Thomas Rawls
