Two Life Change Graduates Tell Their Stories

Rachael McDonald

The Eugene Mission is the only drop-in night shelter for homeless adults in Lane County. In recent years, the Christian organization has developed the “Life Change Program” to help people deal with addiction and other problems. It’s not easy. People have to give up drugs, alcohol, tobacco, even their cellphones. Friday evening, the Mission is celebrating 14 men and women who’ve completed the year-long program with a graduation ceremony.

KLCC’s Rachael McDonald spoke with Rick Taylor who is speaking at the event.

She also talked with Cara Darling who is also graduating Friday.


The graduation is Friday evening at 6 at the Downtown Athletic Club in Eugene.
