Review for Randy Sams Outreach Shelter, Texarkana, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Almost 8 yrs ago, I came to Randy Sams after running away from Houston where I had been beaten up, severely, by a man who rented a room in our home. He was not in custody and police suggested I leave for my safety until he was locked up. I had nothing but the clothes on my back and multiple injuries. Randy Sams took me in, with no questions asked. I was safe, housed, fed and emotionally supported. Jennifer was very kind to me. I followed the rules and took advice. People cared for me before I even cared for me. I had never been homeless and penniless, before. I was beaten down in everyway but the people at Randy Sams knew what I needed. I met my husband of 7 yrs, while at the shelter. We have worked hard to have a beautiful home, vehicle, bills paid....and self respect. My husband and I met and married quickly and many told us it would never work but our marriage is my blessing. My husband works 60 hrs a week and is 8 yrs sober from alcohol. We credit Randy Sams with our "foundation" on which we have built our lives. Robert and I are forever grateful for the love, care and concern Randy Sams gave to us individually and as a family.
