Remember Andy? He’s made it home!
After 9 years of living and working in New Orleans, Andy came to Grace at the Greenlight in desperate need for help after he lost his job as a waiter due to COVID-19 and unfortunately faced eviction. We met with Andy and eventually bought him his ticket home to Pennsylvania where he could be reunited with his son and have a stable environment while he looked for a new job.
We have been following up with Andy and we are proud to say that he now has a full-time job and his own apartment! Stories like Andy’s are why we created our “Going Home” program. Sometimes, all it takes is a bus ticket and some food to help someone get on their feet again.
