After six months of living at The Samaritan Inn and working the program toward independence – he did it! He learned how to find a job, whatis needed to keep a job, attended our Financial Peace University class and saved over $1,500. With one full-time job and two part-time jobs, he’s totally changed his life and was ready for the next step, our transitional housing program called Gateway. This program, available for up to 18 months, allows graduates to slowly start paying rent, building up to market rent rates, while maintaining case management from The Inn.The apartment was adopted by small groups from Chase Oaks Church in Plano. It was the first time they did this kind of project, and already say they would like to do it again next year! It took 3-4 weeks to gather all the items they needed to transform an empty apartment into a warm, nurturing home.Things are really looking up for our new graduate. He’s happy to leave the room he shared with three snoring men behind him and just last week he earned a $2/hr raise at his full-time job!
“God’s been working through a lot of people in my life and what you’ve done is a real testimony,” he said to the group. He told them he could see what was in their hearts and it was beautiful.
Press “like” to wish him success and to thank Chase Oaks for their generous, hands-on donation!”
