"I've transformed because of what Kasper has done," she said.

A few years ago, Heidi Hansen stayed at the Value Motel in Hazel Dell, an infamous motel where drugs were regularly bought and sold. She was homeless, anxious, and in need of shelter.

She remembers the experience as one of total despair and hopelessness.

“That place really needed to come down,” she said.
