Lisa came to Interfaith in need of a place to recover after she found herself in the hospital with a broken hip, a result of her alcohol addiction. After her recovery, Lisa transitioned into Interfaith's Behavioral Health & Recovery Program, where she lived for a year and began practicing something that surprised her: art therapy. Today, Lisa is sober, lives in her own home in Encinitas and volunteers with Interfaith, teaching arts & crafts to veterans currently enrolled in the Recuperative Care Program. "Interfaith saved my life, no doubt about it. I wouldn't have lasted long on the streets; they gave me a home and my sobriety."

Lucilo first walked through Interfaith's doors by way of the food pantry; he regularly received nutrition assistance, including turkeys during Thanksgiving to supplement holiday meals. When he found himself homeless several years later, Lucilo again turned to Interfaith for help finding a place to live. Today, with Interfaith's help, he lives in a three-bedroom apartment with enough room for his two sets of twins, ages four and nine. "I never thought I would be asking for all this help, but life goes up and down. I'm just very lucky I found a place like Interfaith."

Tony's journey with Interfaith began after he was laid off and found himself without a paycheck or health benefits. After talking with the social services team, Tony was able to obtain a security deposit for a new apartment, gain access to the emergency food pantry and was given a bus pass to get to and from work. "Interfaith kept me off the street. Without them, I don't know what I would've done."
