From Homeless to Hopeful.
I am from Lake Charles Louisiana. My mother Rosie Robinson had 16 children, of which I was the youngest. Eight boys, and eight girls, with no twins. From the time I was a little girl, I worked side by side with my mother in various restaurants. I graduate in 1980 from Marion High School. After finishing high school, I took the greyhound bus on my way to Hollywood. I had planned to stop in Austin, to drop off my little niece and nephew, but I found Austin would be my final stop. I saw the need of the children, and the needs of the homeless. I prayed in my heart that I could make a difference. At that point God took over my life. I adopted three children through CPS. Then many others, also through CPS. Through God my heart and mind were in a new place. I wanted to be a blessing to the poor. My journey started back in 1980, and continues today, feeding over 1300 homeless children and elderly every week.
