Myth: People choose this life
90% of women who are experiencing homelessness have been victims of domestic violence. They may be escaping abuse or have believed the lie that they don’t have worth which led them down a dark path. But there is hope. At Mel Trotter, these women can heal, their lives can be restored and they can find a home.
The Mission Myth Busters series seeks to address misconceptions about homelessness and helps to bring awareness to issues people experiencing homelessness face.
