Last September 26th, I thought the bottom had dropped out of my life. I was in a car accident, spent 9 days in the hospital, had all my personal possessions impounded and had $5800 stolen from my hotel room.
I had $8, and the clothes on my back and ended up at the Boulder Shelter. On my 2nd day I was introduced to the Carriage House, where I found warm food, people I could talk to, and some peace of mind.
Within a week they had provided me a P.O. Box, voice mail, an updated resume’, and most importantly, what felt like a home base. With the resume’ and some new clothes, I found employment and some self-esteem within two weeks.
I’m sure there are more stories like mine and I will be eternally grateful.
