Before Michael arrived at Bradford House, he’d been homeless for more than 10 years. When his marriage collapsed, he lost hope and started down a path of mental illness and addiction struggles. Finally, with nowhere to go, he found himself living in a number of different places, most recently in a motel.
Last year Michael developed a serious infection and was taken to the hospital. Because of complications from diabetes, he had to have a leg amputated. For months, he learned to live in a wheelchair and struggled through the snow and slush to get to the grocery store.
Thanks to your generosity, Michael is now thrilled to call Bradford House home and continue his recovery. Instead of being homeless, he
- feels safe and protected
– eats nutritious meals tailored to his needs
– receives help to stay on his medications
– enjoys a sense of belonging
Right after Michael’s arrival, our staff to connected him with a family doctor and psychiatrist.
Michael says, “It has been an absolute God-send that I was brought here. I get three square meals and the staff are so caring and encouraging. This is my home and I feel loved here, I really do.”
Michael is looking forward to reconnecting with one of his brothers and meeting his niece and nephew for the first time. We are privileged to help him along on his journey to a brighter future. And we are privileged to have you by our side, supporting this important work.
This year, we are committed to providing over 700 adults and seniors with homes, meals and the compassionate care they need to lead more hopeful and independent lives. But we need your help.
