Before PTS, I was homeless living in a shelter. PTS gave me a place to live and support. My future goal is to become a certified Mental Health Specialist. Thanks, PTS!

PTS has provided me with temporary housing and employment through the PTS Jobs Program. I have the chance to give back. My future goal is to focus on permanent housing.

I was asked to tell a little about myself. At first I didn't know what I could say that would help. I mean, my story is just like yours; it could be not so bad or it could be worst. We all have battle stories and in some cases battle scares. For every scare there is a story; but you thank your higher power that you made it.
Before I came to PTS, I was living under a bridge at the coldest and the wettest time of the year. I could not keep clean, so my right root became infested which caused me to loose two of my toes. I have been stabbed in the back of the head, drove in to a river, hit a big rock, got nine stitches and I can still walk.
Once day I said to myself, " I want a better life!" I wanted to live! My faith kept me going. When I came to Positive Transition Services things changed. I started working, making new friends; but most of all I AM GETTING MY LIFE BACK!
In the short time that I have been in PTS, I was asked to join a Lead position on the Fundraising team. I am humbled that they believe in me; because I am trying to do my best for my new family and it is a family. We have a mixer of some of the funniest, loving, happiest, grumpiest, group of people; but you have to have all that mixture to make a family. And you have to love them all. I thank my God for this place I am in. I have a chance now.
