MACON, Ga. -- Some adults have a new start to life as they graduated from the Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia.

The mission helps people with addiction and homelessness.

One graduate said the experience helped him in several ways.

"Well it changed my life and they helped get me a job and because of my drug addiction, all my teeth came out," said graduate Terry Wilson. "They just bought me new dentures and I go to church every Sunday."

Going forward, Wilson said he'll be a productive citizen and continue working hard making pallets.
