As I entered the ABLE Housing Program at Hope House, I literally had nothing.
Brandon, Able Housing Client
I was starting from the bottom, living at an emergency shelter. I was not sure if I would ever be able to have the things I hoped for in the future. Now, I have had my own apartment for just over a year, with a key that is solely mine, that has MY belongings inside. Having this gives me purpose and something to work hard to keep. I have had some slip ups in the last year but Hope House has stayed by my side and is giving me a chance to prove I can establish a life on my own. I hope my story will prove that all the hard work between Hope House and myself was not a waste of time. These are things I could never repay to Hope House but I want to pay it forward to others by being a role model. I want to help people who have faced the same struggles I have.
