Tawnya Brummett said she was on her own in Tyler a couple of years ago with no place to go and no one to turn to for help.
“I was in an abusive relationship, and I finally walked out the door,” Brummett said. “I had no place to go, and I just called out to God.”
Her journey took her to the Hiway 80 Rescue Mission in Longview. She lived in the mission’s Women and Families Shelter for about two years until Friday when she and two other women moved out to rent their own three-bedroom house.
