I was a broken down person. I was living on the street for almost a year. Lost and alone. I had nowhere to go. I lost my job, my income when my case worker talked to George at TPC and he let me move in.

George helped me and today I am a much happier person for all that George and TPC has done for me.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

They help me in many ways mostly just making me feel human again living on the streets takes someting away from you and they are helping me get it back

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

When I say the word "homeless", people normally visualise someone sitting on the street in a cardboard box, looking terrible and perhaps even shouting at traffic. This bothers me as I am friends with many homeless people who are very far from this stereotype. It bothers me more as I was one of them.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

When i was down and on the streets they took me in and I always want to come back and help them to return the favor.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get them more money
