Abbey’s Story


Abbey is a 54 year woman with brain trauma who had been living in a tent on the streets of Venice for several years. That changed when a police officer working with the Homeless Task Force helped Abbey collect her tent and belongings and brought her to Chaplain Weller of Venice Foursquare Church. Chaplain Weller immediately brought her to SHARE! where SHARE! staff placed Abbey in a single family home. Within hours of coming to SHARE!, Abbey moved into the house, where Abbey met a community of formerly homeless women who attend self-help support groups and live independently. Abbey formed a close relationship with the women and made a best friend, who helped her reach out to her family in Nevada. A month later, Abbey was able to relocate with her family in Nevada where she is still living with one of her sons.
