Francine Gilchrist was born into a family of thirteen children in Mont-Jolie, Quebec. At far too young an age, she found herself living alone on the streets-a life that would lead her to be raped, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and involved in crime. Hardened and bitter Francine thought there was nothing more to life. Until a dear woman cared enough to take her in, give her a chance, and help her to turn everything around. These days Francine's life and ministry are dedicated to helping others find a second chance.
