Review for DELANCEY STREET FOUNDATION, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Delancey Street is the "Love" of my life. I went into Delancey Street with a black eye, 7 broken ribs& a broken hand. I had no job skills, no socialization skills, all I knew how to do was shoot herion and prostitute since 13 yrs. old. Delancey Street not only saved my life, they gave me one. Someone sat in the hospital w/me for weeks while I was kicking a methadone habit of 7 yrs. Then they took me into their home. I had got beat up by a pimp, saw Mimi Silbert on TV talking about a prostitution survey they were doing in S.F., they took me in, nursed me back to health, and taught me how to live. I have no doubt in my mind that if it wasn't for Delancey Street, I would be dead or in prison. I've been clean for 27 yrs. thanks to Mimi Silbert and the people that dedicate their lives to helping other people. I could never thank them enough.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Having a life, having my family back, being able to work at a job now where I can give back to others what was given to me.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Committed to helping people learn how to live their lives.
