Ft. Lauderdale, Florida • November 2015
Juanita met Miracle Messages at First Presbyterian Church and Hope South Florida. She had been out of contact with her family after leaving her home in Hartford, and had lost touch after changing phone numbers.
Founder Kevin Adler and volunteer Riley Deitado worked on this case. Riley pored through online profiles, but wasn’t sure if she had found the right person. Kevin reached out, hoping for the best.
Juanita reunited after 25 years.
Juanita’s family was overjoyed to hear from her. As her brother said, “We were walking around scared for years…we didn't know if she was alive." After hearing from her through Miracle Messages, those fears were put to rest, and the family began the process of healing.

Timothy C's Story
San Francisco, California • October 2017
Timothy C. had been homeless in San Francisco for five years when he met Miracle Messages. He had been trying to go home almost since he arrived, but he couldn’t reach anyone in his family to go back home to.
Volunteer Nancy Erhard connected with Timothy and immediately got to work searching for his family. It was a tough case--there was no working phone number listed, nor a working email address.
Nancy tried the emails and phone numbers listed online for Timothy’s family, but she couldn’t get through. Undeterred, Nancy wrote a handwritten note to Timothy’s sister.
