Kyle's Amazing Transformation
Kyle is clean cut and wearing a company uniform for his job as an electrician, there are no outward signs pointing to his internal trauma. When he first sat down it was obvious by the look on his face that his experience living on the street changed him forever.
The Road to Success
As we sat down at a local coffee shop the first thing Ladd said to me was, “I never expected to end up living on the street with nowhere to go. I had my own construction business and I thought that homelessness was something that I didn’t have to worry about.”
In Her Own Words
My name is Barbara and I am a Ready to Work graduate. I can honestly say that joining the Ready to Work program was one of the best choices I have made for myself in a longtime. My childhood was not a traditional one. My parents belonged to the Hells Angels Motorcycle gang. Growing up I didn’t realize that my family was different. Everyone I knew belonged to the Hells Angels -- it was just the way things were.
Bridge House Saved My Life
“Bridge House saved my life! I am off the streets and have graduated from Ready to Work.” “I now have a great job at Whole Foods.” Three years ago Jay was in a very different situation. When he was living paycheck to paycheck, one thing went wrong and it turned his life upside down.
Transformation Through Optimism
Before Victor became homeless, he had dreams of becoming a sous chef. He went to school to earn his cooking degree, finished a two-year program, and was on his way. Then he hit a bump in the road.
