The Before & After Me
Hello, my name is Ms. Trina M. Jackson. I once was homeless, living on the streets and in abandoned buildings. I was captured by drugs and the lifestyle it presented.
I was living in a stuck frame of mind. Due to this I was in and out of prison and missing out on precious time from parenting my children.
I had become tired of living in misery to where I asked God to, “help me”. He then led me to N.A., where I met some very loving and caring people.
I never forgot where I came from and the kindness others showed me. As I grew in strength, I reached out to help others, with the help from a friend.
I posted on social media for a helping hand to feed and provide the same resources to others that helped me. That was 5 years ago. Through rain, snow and heat we were out there caring for others.
I have a team that includes family, friends and let us not forget the youth that come out to help and to keep them out of trouble.
