Meet Joseph...

Dear <<First Name>>,

Recently, I was asked by a school superintendent if I remembered Joseph, because he had referred Joseph to Spectrum five years ago for counseling and a place to live when he became homeless. I remembered Joseph as a young man with a lot of difficulties and challenges.
One week later, I saw Joseph on my way to work. He smiled and waved. He said he was waiting for the bus to go to his job, and that he has an apartment nearby. "I'm doing really well," he told me.
Running into Joseph was so gratifying. His story serves as one more lesson that we never know how the help we offer someone will affect them – this is why we must offer all we possibly can to every single person seeking our help, empowering them to make positive changes in their lives.
