Hope Center on FacebookHope CenterHenry loves the Hope Center. Here, he found not only a place to stay when he needed one, but a new start after a heavy blow, one that could happen to any of us. Read more below."I spent six years in the U.S. Navy as a hospital corpsman. After the Navy, I worked as a paramedic in Miami for eight years. My wife and I were married for 22 years. She passed away suddenly in 2006. Years earlier, she had been hit by a drunk driver and had contracted Hepatitis C from an untested blood transfusion. It was a tough blow, and I turned to drinking, then drugs, to cope. I was a heroin addict for almost two years. I went through a program in Miami, and by the grace of God, I've been clean and sober since December 24, 2007. I came up to Kentucky in 2010 to stay with a friend in Nicholasville, but he was getting evicted, so he brought me to the Hope Center and said that they could help me find a place. I didn't know this was a homeless shelter. I've been here off and on since then. The Hope Center means everything to me. When I first got here, I thought I had somewhere to stay, and if it wasn't for the Hope Center I would be out on the street. I never in a million years thought I would be here. I work in the medicine closet, handing out over-the-counter meds to the guys that live here. It's a full-time job, but I love it, and I love knowing the folks that live here. ...
