ago, she found herself outside a store, read-
ing the want ads after being laid off from
work. Saulsbury said that while she pored
over local job listings she was startled by a
homeless man digging through a nearby
“Here I was — laid off, all dressed up in
my suit and heels outside a store, and I see
this guy digging through the dumpster,”
she said. “So I got up and brought him a
can of food. From time to time, I would
return and see the same guy out on the
street. Although I gave him a can of food, I
knew this was not the solution. Just giving
them food is only a Band-Aid and they
need a lot more than that.”
Saulsbury said she was surprised about
the history and circumstances of a lot of the
people living on the street.
“The largest part of them are people just
like you and me. They live from paycheck
to paycheck. One day something goes
wrong, and the next thing they know
they’re out on the street. Some of these
men are from out of town and have been
promised jobs here. Once they get here, the
jobs aren’t there and the money runs out,”
Saulsbury said. “The Salvation Army will
shelter them for only 14 days.”
Saulsbury, who is also a mother of six, a
model, and outside salesperson, works
closely with her husband David, who is the
corporate secretary of the organization.

draws a great deal of moral strength from
“He types and everything. He really
does and awesome job. When everything
starts crumbling around me,” she said, “he
prays with me and helps me put things back
David Saulsbury said he was more than
happy to support what he calls a “collec-
tive effort led by divine inspiration.” He
said he thought it was great that his wife
wanted to reach out to the less fortunate
and he naturally wanted to become
“Initially, we got together with a few
other people and started to divvy out
responsibilities. I always thought I was
good at researching, so I offered to take up
the legal end of it. With the help of Gene
Arnold and the Small Business Develop-
ment Center at Lamar University, I filed
the incorporation papers and basically
taught myself to be a CPA. I saw very early
that it’s like a snowball effect — the more
you see what needs to be done, the easier it
is to step out and do it,” David Saulsbury
“I named it ‘Diverse Unity’ because our
volunteers are from all walks of life...rich,
poor, black, white. We’re so diverse and we
all come together as one to help others.”
Saulsbury said their primary goal is to
raise funds for the building, but they also
need items such as blankets, coats, tarps
and food. Persons interested in more infor-
mation about the program may contact the
