        Push Faith House was started because the founder, Shirley Brown  was homeless  from 2011-2013. She obtained  the now Push Faith House building, zoned as commercial, in April of 2013. The building had living quarters upstairs and business space downstairs. She began operation of Angel’s Island Salon/ Kingdom Kuts Christian Cosmetology School downstairs. On December 25, 2013,her   66 year old uncle came and stayed with her because he had became homeless and asked  could he stay with her for a little while. He had had a stroke and wasn’t moving around  as he would like. Shortly there after ,a 45 year old lady that came from out of town with a relative of hers became homeless  due to the domestic abuse.. She offered her home and  the lady  accepted the offer and was grateful.. In addition  Shirley had a 21 year old son  that also living in her home but unemployed. In January of 2014, Shirley  took on a part time job to help with the bills because living expenses were rising. Since then , by word of mouth ,Shirley began  providing shelter to people that needed a temporary place to stay completely funded by , Shirley and  community donations.
