Mental Samurai contestant Scott Perry has donated $5,000 to Jessie’s Place “to support women and children through difficult times.” The Birmingham native made a record-setting run on the Rob Lowe-hosted game show last summer and delivered the check in person to the Mission this morning.

At the age of three, Caitlin and her younger brother were abandoned in an empty building in a small city 120 miles southeast of Moscow, Russia, in the dead of winter. Passersby luckily discovered the freezing children and for the next year, they were treated for pneumonia in a local hospital before entering the orphan system. Over the next two decades, Caitlin was institutionalized, in some capacity or another, while looking for stability, love, and hope.
“I was once addicted to crack and cocaine until I had a breakthrough and God spoke to me about letting go of my addictions. I am currently sober and seeking God’s face and His will for my life every day.”
Jessie’s Place has given me and my children the opportunity to grow even closer and bond. I have a safe place to stay while getting my life together.”
