Alabama NewsCenter — Two Birmingham, Alabama, nonprofits collaborate to strengthen families

1 min read

With only pocket change and Greyhound bus tickets, Lehua Lewis traveled across the country with her family to Birmingham in 2012 for a fresh start.

Originally from Seattle, Lewis moved to Alabama after her oldest daughter passed away. Following a divorce from an abusive husband, the single mom stayed temporarily at Jessie’s Place, a center for women and children. She and her four children then relocated to public housing before struggles with substance use resulted in the state taking her kids away.

It took a year, but with the help of local ministries, Lewis found freedom from addiction. Then, she started volunteering at Birmingham-based Serving You Ministries (SYM).
