Regular Guy, Falling on the Hardest Times
Dan's just a regular guy.
He was never on drugs. He doesn’t drink too much. He doesn’t have any mental health issues. He could have been your brother or your best friend. And still, he ended up facing a life on the streets.
He lost his landscaping job during the COVID shutdowns. He’d been scraping by to make ends meet, and didn’t have much savings. As his money ran out, he couch surfed, but eventually he knew he had to do something else. So he asked a friend to bring him to the Mission.
“I should have made the decision months before that,” said Dan.
Thanks to the gifts of friends like you, Dan got hot meals, safe shelter and help looking for a job. He applied for, and got, a job at a lumber factory, where he’s working now.
He’s been saving money and plans to move out as soon as he has enough saved up for an apartment.
People Change Here Because of You!
“I had gone through exhausting all my resources,” Dan says. “Without the Mission...I’d be on the streets.”
When you give another gift today you can change another life! Each $2.05 you give will provide a meal—which is often the start of a changed life, off the streets!
