I sit across from Brittany and listen to her story. Domestic violence forced her to flee from home with her infant daughter nearly one year ago. Unemployed and homeless, she desperately sought help. And through a series of phone calls, coincidences and miracles, she found herself, one-thousand miles from her home, sitting face-to-face with Asheville citizen Mary Sczudlo, director of Homeless Services for Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministry (ABCCM). And Brittany had found her place – Steadfast House, transitional housing for homeless women and children, including several beds specifically for veterans.
