“If it wasn’t for PADS, I don’t know where I’d be. They’ve helped me get all my medicine. They’ve gotten me to every appointment and provided transportation. The sheets are clean when I go to bed at night. I can laugh here and the people are nice." - Rose Valle, Former PADS Client

“I have never seen a shelter like this, with security and comfort, and people breaking their backs to help us. The people at PADS care about us like we are family and they have become our family.” – Eugene Thomas, Former PADS Client
