Divine Rest, Inc. could not have done this mission alone. With unity, we were able to provide homeless women with the necessary tools to enhance their quality of life. The help of our board members, sponsors and community workers have been a blessing to us. With any great work, it takes unity.

With tons of community support and sponsors, Divine Rest, Inc. is able to display pure unity.

A weary Robbie Mills lived in a homeless camp under the Truman Parkway overpass at President’s Street for five months. Then he found Divine Rest.

Mills, a native of Ludowici, had lived a hard life.

He had been in and out of prison six times. When he was released in June 2013, he no longer had any living relatives to take him in. So Mills wandered until he found a homeless camp on the edge of downtown Savannah.

Each day he would trek into town for meals at local soup kitchens and services at local charities, then make his way back to camp past the evening rush of island area commuters.

Mills existed on the outskirts of society for five long hot months. He was free but bound by his troubled past and circumstances. He was surrounded by people but empty and alone.

Then one day some church ladies showed up in stifling heat to hand out bottled water.

“They walked up to me under the Truman Parkway Bridge with a bottle of water,” said Mills. “There was something special about them. They weren’t just nice people out to do something good. It was like they had all this love to share, and since I met them my life has completely turned around.
