Meet Opportunity House Senior Resident Herb W
When and why did you originally come to Opportunity House? I was staying at a hotel and didn’t want to live on the streets. I came to Opportunity House.
What motivated you to make changes in your life? God was showing me his will and his plan for me. Opportunity House case workers provided guidance.
How did you feel when you found permanent housing? Great!
How has staying connected to Opportunity House helped you with your goals? It helps me with all of my goal. I believe God gave me a gift to encourage and help others. I tell them “You can make it.”
