I was homeless off and on for five years, until BACS did not give up on me and helped me twice. I have been very comfortable in my new apartment for a record-breaking 5 months. I have a great, great manager who helped me adjust to this new environment. As a two-time award-winning writer, I had never thought I’d be homeless.
I want to thank Bay Area Community Services for finding me permanent housing, and Yolanda for nominating me for the Resilience and Determination (RAD) Hero Award, presented by The Alameda County Community Consumer Advisory Board.
