DELANCEY STREET FOUNDATION
November 3, 2009
My name is John Jacobs and,if I was'nt a husband, father and grandfather I would never have left Delancy Street. Because of Delancy Street I am all of the above but better than that, Delancy Street taught me to give a damm...not only about my life but "your's Too"! Since I left Delancy Street I have received my degree from USF and worked at the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic. I have been clean since 1990 and, today I work at the same parole office that, I used to report too. Delancy Street gave me a new life and,a new attitude! For me, Delancy is not just a place but, a way of life that needs to be practiced in every town, village and ghetto in the country or.....the world for that matter. Delancy Street through tough love, taught me to love myself by being honest to myself and others. I also was blessed by the family environment that is Delancy Street. I would like to take time to thank all of the Delancy Street family (the abe's, the terrie's, the charlottes, the dick's and, the ray's, my peers)that helped me change my dippers and fed me until, I was able to feed and change myself! But, more than that, " thank you MIMI for Dugal's input and for, having faith in me. Delancy Street Foundation is not a program..."IT's A WAY OF LIFE'!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My own life!
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
My experience with Delancy Street continue's with my friends who are still there. Some of them have spent 20..30 years in Delancy Street saving lives!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
seriously sincere about the work of building character in people.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
adopt all the children taken from drug addicts of the bay area, move them into a clean environment (like Delancey Street)and create a cleaner careing world.
