Your Way Home Community Impact Report 2014-2015
Your Way Home is very pleased to announce the release of its Community Impact Report 2014-2015.
The report includes the following letter from a dad who was experiencing homelessness, to his Housing Stability Coach.
Six months ago I was hopeless. Stability, a house and job was a dream and a fairytale. I got 100% clean the day I moved in on 12/24/14. You provided an opportunity and a starting point to build my life on. It was very stressful being homeless and living with a bunch of addicts and not knowing how or where to start or being overwhelmed with too much to fi x at once: house, job, sobriety, family, bills, etc.
The house was the huge break and push I needed. What you off ered was the building block of my life. The house got our family back together. There are not enough words to express my gratitude, so I strive to let my actions do the speaking. I’ve done more drugs, been to more prisons, and lost more kids then most of your clients ever will. And I was on track for losing more. You believed in me more than I did, gave me a chance, and never judged me.
