"I never thought I could have a home. New Beginnings gave me hope."
"I was a homeless man for 18 years. I'm a paranoid schizophrenic. Where I've been I had no help.... I didn't have anywhere to eat, I had no pillow, I didn't have dry clothing. At New Beginnings now I have stability and counseling and people who care about me... I know we can change if we're cared about, if we're guided."
"I became homeless when my grandmother passed. Being homeless was a struggle for me. People out there on the street are suffering, dying, very sick, and really need this help. I think everyone has got to put themselves in our place. We're all human beings; we all have problems. But how would you know what we could do if you don't give us a chance? New Beginnings gave me a chance to achieve my goals and make a difference, just cause we're homeless doesn't mean we're helpless. Everybody has potential."
Solving chronic homelessness starts today.
