Hope Center on Facebook

Alex is a Hope Center client who shared his story with us earlier this year. He stays at the Emergency Shelter, and he's saving up to find a place of his own. Here's a little of his story:
"I worked for 35 years before I was no longer able to. Before I came to the Hope Center, there were things that were bringing me down, and I was drinking, which made it all worse. So I stopped feeling sorry for myself and just got up.

I was a cowboy without a horse, but I had a couple of ropes, so I finally caught a horse.

The interaction I have here with all these different people – it’s a healing process both for me and for others. We help each other through the healing process. I’ve been blessed with a good caseworker in Mr. Shawn. I talk to guys here about keeping a positive attitude."
